The UAE yacht code were submitted to the IMO and to all IMO members in 2009. Tasneef took the initiative to update the code, establish the interpretations, check lists as well as the operating system. On this basis, the UAE introduced the code to the UAE market as well as the international market in 2014 as the first of its kind globally.
Tasneef as the technical arm of the Federal Transport Authority, carries out UAE Yacht Code surveys and certification on its behalf. Tasneef has been involved in all stages of development, interpretation, implementation of the code and increasing the awareness in the local and global yachting industry. Tasneef’s involvement in the development of the UAE Yacht Code has also contributed to improving the yachting standards in the region.
The international conventions and regulations applicable to conventional vessels are not applicable for yachts not engaged in commercial trade.
The need for yacht egulations has been identified, ie yachts above 24 m. not intended for commercial use.
Also in this case, Tasneef has been authorized by FTA to implement the yacht code.
