Dubai Accelerates Maritime Craft Registration

Dubai's maritime sector regulator, the Dubai Maritime City Authority, has announced that as of the end of 2013 it has registered around 500 maritime craft since the introduction of a licensing regime in the emirate.

The regime allows marine vessel owners to register their vessels through a single agency, the DMCA, rather than through several authorities.

Amer Ali, Executive Director at the Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: "DMCA offers an integrated platform to provide easy and fast licensing procedures that ensure higher levels of customer satisfaction for both individuals and businesses. The goal is to create an integrated and secure maritime environment capable of attracting regional and international investments to position Dubai as a premier global maritime hub."

"Through this set of services, we will be issuing licenses for all types of marine crafts, and crew upon verifying their compliance with Dubai's technical specifications, local maritime safety systems and environment-friendly requirements within a world-class environment that meets international standards," Amer Ali added.
