Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates, issued decree no. (24) of 2021 regulating the use of 3D printing in the construction sector in Dubai. The Dubai Municipality is in charge of supervising the new decree’s implementation. The new legislation supports the emirate’s strategic target to ensure that 25 per cent of its buildings are constructed using 3D printing technology by 2030.

The decree also intends to promote Dubai as a regional and international hub for 3D printing technology. The new legislation aims to improve efficiencies in construction projects, increase the competitiveness of the local industry, reduce waste, and attract leading companies in the sector to Dubai as part of a larger plan to spur economic growth and promote the adoption of advanced technologies in the emirate.

Any entity seeking to conduct 3D printing activity in the sector must first register with Dubai Municipality and obtain a license before seeking further approvals from other authorities. Real estate developers should also make sure that 3D printing initiatives are carried out by contractors who have been licensed by the Dubai Municipality to do so.

Decree No. (24) of 2021 is effective from its date of issuance.
