Earlier this year most of the EPS providers were shaken up by the threat by Dubai Civil Defense regarding withdrawal of DCL certificate for EPS material if it is not complying the “UAE Fire and Life Safety Code Practice “.

The certification from the Highness is not just an award, but also a special recognition as he stated in his words, “Me and My People, Love the first Place”, acknowledging that NPPF is the first thermal insulation company to get this certification and the only one capable of maintaining it.
