What we do
We are committed to deliver Service Excellence

The Supreme Legislation Committee (SLC) has a broad mandate and set of responsibilities, including examining and reviewing all draft regulatory legislation proposed by the Government and Government agencies. This involves scrutinizing both form and subject matter of these drafts, offering expert opinions and advice, preparing and adopting the legal wording of such draft legislation. The SLC also takes an active role in suggesting and recommending amendments and updates to existing legislation in the emirate from time to time and representing the emirate in the committees established to study and draft federal legislation.


Through these functions, the SLC plays a pivotal role in maintaining a streamlined and adaptable legislative framework. This, in turn, eases the interpretation of legal documents and supports the smooth execution of various activities in compliance with applicable laws. Additionally, the Committee provides a range of services aimed at enhancing comprehension of legal provisions, fostering adherence to legislative requirements, developing effective review methodologies, and making available domestic and federal legislation and regulatory frameworks and amendments.
