- Jade Wong

Are you a business that wishes to work with ADNOC and looking to register as a company to be visible on the ADNOC Supplier List?

The ADNOC vendor registration is a process which qualifies vendors and providers who wish to work within ADNOC and appear on their list of suppliers. During the procedure, ADNOC   are very selective with who they wish to work with, therefore there are some key things which must be taken into consideration before starting the registration process.

Key Requirements

  • You will require a Mainland Abu Dhabi DED Licence. This may be in the form of an LLC or Foreign Branch.
  • The Trade Licence will need to obtain Supreme Petroleum Council (SPC) Approval.
  • The activities listed on the Licence will need to match the services and products you wish to undertake with ADNOC. It is a good idea in early stages to check the Work/Product list provided by ADNOC as they must match with your Licence activities.

Do you tick all the right boxes above for proceeding with ADNOC Vendor Registration?

The next step is to consider the stages for registration and necessary documents required to submit to ADNOC for their review.
