About DMCC

Established in 2002 by Royal Decree, the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre Authority (DMCC) is a strategic initiative of the Government of Dubai, with a mandate to enhance commodity trade flows through the Emirate by providing the appropriate physical, market, financial infrastructure and services required.


By offering a fit-for-purpose regulatory framework, modern infrastructure, freehold property, innovative products and cost efficient, value-added services, DMCC successfully attracts key participants throughout the entire value chain of a wide range of commodities sectors. However, although DMCC is the region’s only commodities hub, its business activities include free zone, financial and property services.


DMCC is the master developer and licensing authority for the Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) Free Zone, the fastest growing free zone development in Dubai.


Today there are over 7,600 companies registered at the JLT Free Zone across a range of businesses from shipping to recruitment, IT to advertising and more, with 85% of new registrations coming from businesses that are new to Dubai. These include multi-nationals, major regional industry participants as well as small/medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs. Companies operating at the JLT Free Zone enjoy an unparalleled location on Sheikh Zayed Road, streamlined processes, dependable customer support, unique services and industry clustering, modern infrastructure, and freehold commercial and residential property.


DMCC has implemented a robust compliance and regulatory regime which is in line with the compliance related laws and regulations of the UAE Federal Government and the competent international bodies.
