US has an well established  Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3) which houses this directorate - Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory (DCFL) which has been accredited by global ASCLD/LAB. they have formal policy and standard and here is a listing of 392 global crime laboratories are accredited. They will be good example and contact to further your venture.

But so far, I see from the UAE, it surface only single one lab such as United Arab Emirates Computer Emergency Response Team (aeCERT) - Digital Forensics Laboratory • ALI-241-T

Also note to achieve accreditation, which I see important to any lab, there is a program outline for interested laboratories (including crime scene programs and computer forensic programs operating outside of a traditional laboratory) to obtain the ASCLD/LAB-International Program Overview. The latter will provide an explanation of and timelines for the accreditation process. See pdf
