4. The ADNOC Registration Process

The ADNOC registration process follows a structured journey to ensure that vendors and service providers meet ADNOC’s standards. Let’s explore the step-by-step process of ADNOC vendor registration:

Step 1: Register and Activate SAP Ariba Account

The first step is to create and activate the SAP Ariba Account. This account provides access to ADNOC’s Commercial Directory, which is essential for initiating the registration process. Setting up this account is crucial to proceed further with ADNOC registration.

Step 2: Accessing ADNOC Registration Portal

Once the SAP Ariba Account is active, you can access the ADNOC Registration portal using the Ariba account number. This is where you will submit all the necessary company documents and information required by ADNOC for vendor qualification.

Step 3: Submission Review by ADNOC

After submitting the company documents and information, there is a review period of approximately one week. ADNOC’s experts will carefully review the submission and assess the eligibility based on the provided information. If your submission is successful, ADNOC will contact you to proceed to the next stage.

Step 4: Pre-Qualification Stage

A crucial phase of the ADNOC vendor registration procedure is the Pre-Qualification stage. You will be required to provide examples of at least three projects your company has previously completed. ADNOC may also ask for more specific technical data regarding the proposed goods or services.  This stage helps ADNOC ensure that your business has the necessary experience and expertise to meet their standards.

Step 5: Acceptance as an ADNOC Vendor

If you successfully pass the Pre-Qualification stage, you will be officially accepted as an approved vendor for ADNOC. Your company will be listed on ADNOC’s Supplier list, making it visible to ADNOC project managers and procurement teams. This recognition opens doors to potential collaborations and opportunities within the ADNOC network.
