Abu Dhabi Government launches safe and clean certification program
May 21, 2020

Abu Dhabi's Department of Culture and Tourism has launched a safe and clean certification program for public places - the first of its kind in the region.

With attractions, hotels, shopping malls and other public places in Abu Dhabi preparing to cautiously re-welcome guests to their venues, the Department is aiming to safeguard the health and wellbeing of consumers by offering certifications that ensure the compliance of standardised hygiene levels in tourism destinations and industry businesses within the Emirate.

Abu Dhabi's Department of Culture and Tourism Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing, Ali Hassan Al Shaiba explained "our priority is to ensure that our residents and visitors feel safe and comfortable in Abu Dhabi.

“And as hygiene and cleanliness have risen to become vital factors considered by all individuals today, we believe that it is imperative for all institutions and businesses to elevate and then maintain hygiene standards.

“As the leaders in tourism, our role is to pave the way for industry players and set standards that suit our consumers. Through this tourism board led program, we hope to boost the confidence of consumers when considering Abu Dhabi as a tourism destination.

“Our dedicated team has been working closely with different stakeholders to ensure that this program considers all elements of health and safety and we encourage all hotels and industry partners to attain the certificate.”
