Dubai Maritime City wins key ISO certification

DUBAI, January 20, 2018

Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) said it has received the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 31000:2009 for implementing its risk management framework that meets the highest international standards.
This is yet another major milestone in the Authority's efforts to boost Dubai’s global maritime leadership, said the statement from DMCA. 
The international recognition highlighted DMCA’s leadership in applying best risk management practices to build a secure and sustainable maritime sector that supports the country’s economic diversification policy and preparations for a post-oil economy and perform well in an environment full of uncertainty, it stated.
DMCA's executive director Amer Ali said that receiving ISO 31000:2009 is an important step towards building a resilient maritime community; enhancing economic performance and professional reputation, as well as environmental, safety and security for the maritime sector. 
This recent development will also help bolster the country’s readiness during emergencies and efforts to protect local communities in the best possible way in line with UAE Vision 2021, stated Ali.
“The new achievement will pave the way for us going into the Business Continuity Management which is a mandate given by the executive council and the NCEMA. In addition, it will help enhance the confidence of the international investment community in the local maritime industry as we continue to launch initiatives to develop competitive, inclusive and attractive maritime clusters in support of our economic and cultural advancements,” he added.
DMCA is now among the very few organizations in Dubai Government and globally which is ISO 31000 Certified. It is not surprising that we have received the prestigious international recognition made possible by our wise leaders’ unwavering support. 
"This concluded our journey in securing global certifications as it followed our successful bid to obtain four ISO certificates in environmental management, quality, Health and Safety Management and information security," said Ali. 
"Proud of our latest achievement, we are inspired even more to further reinforce our risk management and business continuity capabilities in collaboration with our strategic government partners. Our ultimate goal is to turn into a reality the vision of the Dubai Government to make the emirate one of the world’s best maritime capitals," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
