Dubai Executive Council's Health and Safety Committee approves ‘Maritime Safety Policy'

March 4, 2013, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Dubai Executive Council's health and safety committee recently approved the proposed ‘Maritime Safety Policy' which was specially formulated by Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) as part of initiatives of the strategic maritime plan, which is the first of its kind in Dubai aimed at developing, organizing and promoting the maritime sector. The new policy comes in line with the government entity's efforts to establish Dubai as a leading global maritime hub by focusing on enhancing all aspects related to maritime development, including maritime safety which requires the upgrading of infrastructure, developing operational processes and improving the efficiency and effectiveness in ensuring the safety of employees, passengers and visitors.

The Maritime Safety Policy is of immense strategic importance in line with Dubai's efforts to host the “Expo 2020”. The new policy is based on integrated unified criteria that are on par with the highest international maritime standards, representing a strong foundation to support the national economy as it plays a vital role in attracting foreign investment to the maritime sector, developing various marine components and enhancing the competitiveness of Dubai at the global and regional levels. The policy is based on three key elements that includes maritime safety rules, maritime safety guidelines and maritime safety initiatives, while the main focus is on three critical areas covering maritime vessels, cruise ships and passengers, and maritime operations.

Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “There is an urgent need to adopt a comprehensive policy and standard guidelines to ensure the highest levels of maritime safety. This will positively impact the operational performance of the local maritime industry and thus boost its contribution to economic development in the long run. Dubai Maritime City Authority developed the new policy in line with its commitment to create an integrated approach to ensure the highest levels of maritime safety and enhance the competitiveness of the maritime sector which is one of the main pillars that supports Dubai's all-round development.”

“Although the maritime sector in Dubai is extremely safe, it is important to adopt sustainable practises in order to keep pace with the rapid growth of marine recreational and marine business activities. Hence we had to take proactive measures to reduce potential accidents and minimise environmental impact, in addition to improving the infrastructure and promoting the competitiveness of the maritime industry. We are pleased to cooperate with many prominent government entities in Dubai to develop a unified framework to support our joint efforts to develop a modern and safe maritime sector in Dubai. We look forward to coordinating closely with all our strategic partners in order to provide basic data, necessary support and suitable resource planning to ensure the successful implementation of the maritime safety policy,” Ali concluded.

The 'Maritime Safety Policy' is a joint collaboration between the 'Dubai Maritime City Authority' and different government entity's and maritime stakeholders in Dubai including DP World, Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Dubai Municipality, Roads and Transport Authority, Department of Finance, General Administration of Civil Defence, Dubai Police, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Drydocks World, Global Navigation, Dubai Customs and other federal parties.
