DMCA discusses mutual cooperation and shares maritime expertise with Abu Dhabi Transport Department

June 30, 2013 Dubai, United Arab Emirates :  As part of its efforts to strengthen communication and ongoing coordination with other local government and federal agencies, Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) recently received a high-profile delegation from the Marine Transport Division of the Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi (DoT) to discuss mutual cooperation and help raise the bar on maritime performance, safety and efficiency in the UAE.

The meeting centered around DMCA's major achievements in the area of new maritime regulations and legislations, including the recently issued policies regarding jet-ski and marine crew licensing in Dubai, in addition to the ongoing efforts to regulate the local maritime industry as per the best international practices and the highest standards of maritime safety.

Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, accompanied by a number of senior officials from DMCA, welcomed the delegation led by Humaid Saber Al Hameli, Acting Director Maritime, Marine Transport Division, Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi, who examined the procedures for licensing of crew on personal, commercial, sports, tourist and recreational crafts, including small and large-sized pleasure craft, commercial marine vessels and traditional wooden dhows. They further discussed the laws pertaining to the use of jet-skis in Dubai's waters and the allocation of use and rest areas on the coastline, based on a comprehensive study on marine traffic and activity across local coasts to guarantee safe navigation.

Amer Ali explained that the meeting comes in line with DMCA's strategy to promote cooperation with various strategic partners from government and non-government entities to make a positive change in the local maritime industry. “DMCA and the DoT's Marine Transport Division share a common vision aimed at developing new regulations and legislations to ensure the adoption of best practices to improve the level of maritime safety and create more rewarding investment opportunities across the highly competitive maritime sector in the UAE,” Ali added.

“The visit of the Transport Department demonstrates our commitment to the joint efforts and cooperation at the local level to boost competitiveness across the maritime industry and position the UAE as a first-class international maritime hub. We look forward to promoting strong strategic partnerships with key industry players in the country by sharing our vision, expertise and best practices to create an integrated, safe and sustainable maritime environment that effectively responds to the rapidly changing market conditions and keep pace with the emerging trends while also attracting foreign investors, thus boosting the contribution of the maritime sector towards sustained economic development,” Ali concluded.

Dubai Maritime City Authority has started implementing the Marine Driving License policy across Dubai's territorial waters. All applicants must be medically fit and have the theoretical and practical knowledge and expertise to drive light marine vessels, abras and leisure crafts. Crew members on commercial and traditional wooden dhows must be completely familiar with the operations of marine radars, communication systems and navigation maps, in addition to being able to use the various equipments for safety, first-aid, public safety, fire fighting and water pollution.
