stringent and expected performance standards are extremely high,” said Dr. B. R.
Shetty, Chairman, UAE Exchange Group. “This is indeed very special to us as it
recognises the success of our robust continuous improvement programmes, put in
place to facilitate our journey to excellence,” he further added.

partners, regulators, well-wishers and the Government of Dubai, for inspiring the brand.
Dr. Shetty noted, “It is the quest for excellence, the endeavour to go that extra mile and
the passion to be always one step closer to our customers and partners that is the
driving force for achieving optimum quality across our worldwide operations for the last
35 years.”

The Gold Award comes as a result of a stringent long-term programme of business
excellence in UAE Exchange. The brand holds the ISO 9001 certification for Quality
Management System, ISO 14001 for Environment Management System, ISO 27001 for

a company’s initiatives and structures pull together in desired directions. The award’s
methodology is based on the Excellence Model used by the European Foundation for
Quality Management (EFQM). It confers the ‘Gold’ status to only those organisations
