The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the main maritime crossing points between Asia and Europe. Geographically, it is situated at the intersection of the Suez Canal, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, and the Strait of Hormuz. The Dubai Marine City Authority (DMCA) was founded in 2007 for Maritime Arbitration by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, to oversee, advance, and publicize maritime activities in Dubai.
The UAE Maritime Code, also known as the UAE Federal Law No. 26 of 1981, is the law for the regulation and governance of shipping practices in the UAE. This law, amended in the year 1988, covers a variety of topics through its sections and is the guiding light for resolving issues related to maritime law code followed in the UAE.
