In November 2017, an
In-Country Value (ICV) program was announced for Abu Dhabi National Oil Company

Diversification and strategic considerations. In 2019 and 2020, various
Government and Semi-Government Companies (referred to as “Participating
Entities”) have joined hands to broaden the ICV certification process for
Suppliers across various sectors in Abu Dhabi and the UAE. The unified ICV the program aims to consolidate the ICV certification process in a single ICV a certificate that can be used by the supplier to participate in the programs of
the participating entities.
The In-Country Value program
consists of two parts, which are ICV certification and ICV Implementation.
• The ICV certification part is unified and aligned between all ICV
participating entities. The unified ICV certificate will be considered by all
participating entities. Therefore, Suppliers are only required to obtain one
ICV certificate per legal entity that shall be used by all participating
• The ICV implementation will be unique at each entity level. It represents the
way each participating entity will use the certificate in its business
activities. Accordingly, the ICV certificate will be considered by each participating

entities to regulate, supervise, and monitor the ICV program.
