His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, passed a new law relating to the manner in which outdoor and public space advertising is approved and displayed in the Emirate. Decree No. 06 of 2020 regarding the regulation of advertisements in the Emirate of Dubai was passed into law on 20 February 2020. Decree 6 of 2020 is limited in scope to the various forms of outdoor and physical advertising that can be placed within the Emirate.
The law repealed an earlier Local Order from the Dubai Municipality (Local Order No 6 of 1986) that applied to the same activity. The differences between the Local Order and Decree 6 of 2020 are minimal, but may prove to be important.
The new decree includes clarifications of the penalties for non-compliance (up to AED 15,000), which can be multiplied in the case of repetition of offences.
The above provisions will apply from 20 August 2020.
