Dubai Marine Craft Operators Now Need License

Press Release
Sunday, June 16, 2013

Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) begins issuing marine driver’s license in Dubai to boost maritime safety and efficiency on local shores.

The recent decision is in line with DMCA’s ongoing drive to develop a well-defined regulatory framework aimed at regulating, developing and promoting the maritime industry, complementing the Maritime Sector Strategy to strengthen Dubai’s leading position as a top international maritime destination.
 
The application of the new resolution requires licensing for crew on personal, business, sports, tourism and recreational marine craft, including small and large-sized leisure craft, commercial marine vessels and traditional wooden dhows.

According to the resolution, it is prohibited to use any marine craft within Dubai’s territorial waters unless he/she holds a certified license from Dubai Maritime City Authority. 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 marine radar and 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.
