Federal Transport Authority and Dubai Maritime City Authority ink agreement to improve maritime licensing system
 

February 28, 2017. United Arab Emirates: The Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Federal Transport Authority - Land and Maritime in support of the integration of the UAE’s federal and local government entities. The move seeks to establish common regulations for promoting the maritime licensing system according to the highest international standards in order to help reinforcing the status of Dubai and the rest of the UAE among the world’s most prominent maritime and logistical centers. The signing was witnessed by H.E. Dr. Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development and Chairman of the Federal Transport Authority – Land and Maritime; and H.E. Sultan Bin Sulayem, Chairman of Dubai Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation and President of DMCA. 

The agreement was signed by H.E. Abdullah Salem Al Kathiri, the General Director of the Federal Transport Authority – Land and Maritime, and Amer Ali, DMCA’s Executive Director, during a ceremony held at the headquarters of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development in Dubai and attended by senior officials and directors from both sides.

H.E. Dr. Al Nuaimi said: “This agreement will enhance the UAE’s competitiveness and is part of our bid to make the country one of the world’s vital maritime hubs. It will promote the maritime licensing system to significantly develop the local maritime transportation sector which plays an essential role in the UAE’s economic growth and diversification. The agreement reflects the importance of fostering strategic cooperation between federal government and local governments as part of the efforts to achieving the wise vision of the leadership to transform the country into one of the world’s most developed nations.”

H.E. Bin Sulayem also underscored that the MoU with the Federal Transport Authority - Land & Maritime is a major step forward in the government integration process. H.E. added that the agreement will pave the way for more developed maritime licensing mechanisms as well as higher levels of efficiency, competitiveness, performance, and safety. He noted as well that it will serve as a holistic framework for ensuring the integration of all the aspects of maritime safety, secure navigation, and operational efficiency, which will turn Dubai and the UAE into one of the world’s most advanced, competitive, and inclusive maritime and logistical destinations in line with the vision and directives of the country’s wise leaders. 

The DMCA President said: “We are confident that our bilateral cooperation will yield positive results according to local and international guidelines. All stakeholders will benefit from the advanced legislative structure and modern infrastructure designed to enhance the economic role of the local maritime cluster and increase its contributions towards making the country one of the world’s leading transportation, trade, maritime freight, and logistics hubs.”

To further promote their partnership, both parties have agreed to jointly organize and facilitate the registration and licensing of marine crafts in Dubai by establishing a single window system for maritime licensing handled by DMCA. This will guarantee the seamless management of maritime operations according to the highest occupational safety standards, best environmental practices, and local and international resolutions. The two sides also expressed their commitment to overcome all obstacles to the implementation of Cabinet Resolution No. 52 of 2006 of the Federal Transport Authority - Land and Maritime and Resolution No. 11 of 2010 on marine crafts licensing and regulations in Dubai. This commitment will serve common interests and aspirations pursuant to existing legislations.

H.E. Abdullah Salem Al Kathiri said: “We will closely coordinate with the DMCA, which has a proven track record of promoting maritime safety and competitiveness in the world maritime map. Our agreement will reinforce mutual aspirations and our vision in the Federal Transport Authority of building a secure and leading maritime transportation to achieve sustainable development.”

For his part, Ali said: “This agreement is a realization of our common objectives and unites our vision to enhance the maritime sector and serve all stakeholders in Dubai and the UAE. We will further improve customer service and continue business engagement to streamline procedures, minimize red tape and bureaucracy, and deliver the highest levels of customer satisfaction and happiness.”

Both parties will also collaborate on ensuring organized procedures for registering, licensing and renewing the licenses of marine crafts in Dubai. In addition, they vowed to conduct regular inspections to ensure that all marine crafts meet existing requirements and criteria of both parties that are developed to ensure their seaworthiness and the safety of all crew and passengers. Their cooperation covers strict adherence to safety guidelines in maritime navigation and environmental conservation. It seeks to ensure seamless navigation as well through full coordination among all concerned entities in Dubai and the UAE, in addition to human capacity building in the maritime transportation sector.  

Moreover, the two sides expressed their commitment to jointly organize relevant conferences and workshops as well as represent the UAE in international and regional conferences to exchange experiences, expertise, and knowledge with global participants.
