Amendments to the UAE Civil Procedure Code Approved
The UAE’s Cabinet has approved a Decision amending the country’s 1992 Civil Procedure Code in line with the UAE Vision 2021 and UAE Centennial Strategy 2071. They are aimed at strengthening and modernising judicial procedures to ensure they can be applied more easily. The amendments include unifying procedures in all civil courts across the country along with the necessary flexibility to implement judicial decisions in line with the requirements of each judicial body. They were introduced following cooperation between the Federal Justice Ministry, the Supreme Committee of Dubai Legislation, the Judicial Councils and the Military Court. The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, Dubai Courts, Ras al Khaimah Courts and DIFC Courts will have 100 days to reflect the amendments in their procedures.
