The UAE’s Regulations Lab ‘RegLab’ is designed to proactively anticipate and develop future legislation governing the use and applications of emerging technologies in the UAE in ways that maximise the benefits and minimise the risks. It aims to create projects that can be adopted by policy-makers, legislators and regulators worldwide.
RegLab was launched in January 2019 in partnership with Dubai Future Foundation, pursuant to a federal law issued in 2018 authorising the UAE Cabinet to grant temporary licences for the testing and vetting of innovations that utilise future technologies and its applications such as Artificial Intelligence (AI).
It aims to create a reliable and transparent legislative environment, introduce new or develop existing legislation, regulate advanced technological products and applications in support of Vision 2021 and UAE Centennial 2071 Plan.
RegLab will work closely with lawmakers from federal and local government authorities, as well as the private sector and business leaders to develop legislations governing vital future sectors influencing humanity and support the UAE’s role as a global incubator of innovations and creative projects.
