A delegation from the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) visited the headquarters of Dubai Municipality with the aim to share knowledge and expertise in the area of judicial control, since Dubai Municipality is a well-established government entity with long standing tradition in this field.
During the visit, Abdulla Mohammed Khalfan, Director of the Legal Affairs Department of the Dubai Municipality, and his team reviewed the role of the Department in handling all legal affairs and different related issues. The presentation managed to significantly contribute to enriching the normative comparison between the two sides in the area of introducing best practices.
Mr Abdulla Al Hamadi, Director of Accident Investigation and Aircraft Oversight Department of DCAA, reviewed the Authority's mandate in the regulation and supervision of all civil aviation activities in Dubai. The DCAA delegation accompanying Al Hamadi included Mohammed Al Nasser, Legal Affairs Adviser; Majed Al Sarrah, Legal Consultant; Abdullah Al Balushi, Head of Accident Investigation Section; and Ms Hind Al Marzooqi, Head of Smart Services Section.
As DCAA is a legislative body that regulates all civil aviation activities in Dubai under its law of Establishment 19/2010 and complementary law 7/2015 that aims to ensure the security and safety of skies and the control of dangerous acts that threaten the security and safety of civil aviation in addition to taking all precautions to reduce their occurrence, it is necessary for DCAA to play its role fully and effectively.
DCAA has recently activated Executive Council Resolution 4/2017, which regulates fees and penalties for the services it provides to its customers, which in effect increases their confidence in Dubai and supports the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the airport of the world.
