The authority has reportedly completed the process needed to officially provide naval assistance, including the power to grant approval for ships to set sail, drop anchor and move from port to port using maritime lights and the Automated Identification System (AIS), new shipping technologies that represents a stronger push in the move towards ensuring safety, safe navigation and operational efficiency for maritime means within the territorial waters of Dubai.

Mohammed Khalifa Al Huraiz, director, Waterway Control, DMCA, shared that the regulation of ship traffic for new projects in Dubai represents an important addition to DMCA's continuing commitment towards implementing and adopting best practices to ensure safe navigation.

He also pointed out the significance of maintaining key collaborations with strategic partners to implement best maritime practices that would strengthen Dubai's leadership on the global maritime map.
