Role of local municipalities
Local municipalities in the UAE are the entities authorised for overseeing building and construction safety in the country. They implement unified building codes, which deal with construction safety and fire protection among other issues. The codes aim at improving the construction standards for buildings in the UAE. The codes introduce a common and transparent set of regulations to govern all construction activities across the UAE.
