Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has issued new legislations to bolster the operational efficiency of Dubai government entities.

The new legislations include Laws No. (15), (16), (17) and (18) of 2020, and Decree No. (34) of 2020.

 

Dubai Nuclear Energy Committee, Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation, Dubai Real Estate Institute and Dubai Institute for Human Resource Development fall under the ambit of the new laws.

Dubai Nuclear Energy Committee
Under Decree No. (34) of 2020, all the mandates, assets and staff of Dubai Nuclear Energy Committee will be merged into the Supreme Council of Energy.

Staff of the committee will be transferred to the Council while retaining all their employee rights, while the committee’s budget will also be transferred, which will be responsible for all the commitments and liabilities of the Committee.

The new decree annuls Decree No. (26) of 2009, Decision No. (6) of 2020, and any other legislation that contradicts its provisions.

Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation
As per the newly issued Law No. (15) of 2020, some of the mandates and functions of the Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation will be transferred to the Community Development Authority.

These include mandates regarding movable and immovable property related to minors. Two organisational units, the Departments of Social Studies and Research, and Welfare and Rehabilitation will also be shifted to the Authority.

Law No. (15) of 2020, which will be effective from the date of its issuance, also directs the transfer of functions related to donations, gifts, wills, Zakat, endowments, as well as Dubai government financial support for minors to the Authority, except for investments of minors managed by the Foundation.

Staff members who will be transferred from the Foundation to the Authority will retain all their employee rights. In addition, budgets allocated to the two departments will be also moved. The new law has set a three-month deadline for Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation and Community Development Authority to complete the transfer.

Dubai Real Estate Institute
Law No. (16) of 2020 pertains to the dissolution of the Dubai Real Estate Institute, whose commitments and liabilities will be transferred to the Dubai Land Department.

The law also confirms that only employees deemed a good fit for the department’s objectives will be transferred to the Dubai Land Department.

Dubai Institute for Human Resource Development
According to Law No. (17) of 2020, Dubai Institute for Human Resource Development will be dissolved and all its assets including financial assets and real estate ownership will be transferred to the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG).

The Institute’s staff members, who will be transferred to MBRSG after review with the Dubai Government Human Resources Department, will retain all their employee rights. Meanwhile, budgets allocated to the institute will also be transferred.

The new law annuls Law No. (12) of 2003 pertaining to the establishment of the Institute, along with any other legislation that contradicts it.

Meanwhile, Law No. (18) of 2020 amends articles of Law No. (3) of 2012 on MBRSG. Article (6) of the Law No. (3) pertaining to certain mandates of MBRSG will be replaced by a new article.
