Applicable Laws

As such the UAE doesn’t have any comprehensive data protection law; however, there are a number of general and sectoral laws that can have a direct impact on processing of data. There are a few specific areas/ economic zones that have their own personal laws which are almost as stringent as European Data Privacy Laws.

For instance, the economic “freezone” areas of Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) each have their own comprehensive legislative regime applicable to companies established in those zones, which include data protection regulations and are quite similar in nature to the European data privacy laws.
