In line with its efforts to build a secure, renewable and sustainable maritime sector, Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) revealed the successful completion of maritime traffic inspections conducted across the regional waters of the emirate during the first six months of 2019 (H1 2019)--representing a strong push in the move to enhance maritime regulatory processes and operational procedures and in the efforts to promote Dubai on the global maritime map.

The DMCA’s Maritime Inspections Department has reported conducting extensive inspections between January to June of this year, which saw remarkable participation from marine, commercial, tourism, sports, recreational and traditional marine segments, as well as a series of maritime safety campaigns aimed at enhancing the integration of maritime safety, safe navigation and efficiency operating along the waters of Dubai.

DMCA, which is a key pillar in ensuring compliance with local and international standards, has recently entered the list of the world’s best maritime capitals for 2019. The Marine Inspection Department has made significant progress in increasing awareness and education to enable boat owners and operators to identify the best ways to ensure the highest standards of maritime safety to a more safe, renewable and attractive environment for regional and international investors--falling in line with Dubai’s leading position as a highly competitive, comprehensive and sustainable marine hub.

Abdullah Bin Touk, Director of Marine Inspection, DMCA, said: “We continue to ensure the safety and security of lives and property within Dubai’s regional waters, which falls in line with local and international standards, by holding awareness and education campaigns and conducting comprehensive inspections under the supervision of qualified human resources.”
