The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), a strategic initiative of the Government of Dubai, was established in 2002 with a mandate to provide the physical, market and financial infrastructure required to set up a commodities market place in Dubai, spanning a wide range of commodities industries.
The main commodity divisions within DMCC are Gold, Diamond, Pearls, Tea and Cotton, and DMCC has initiated several joint venture companies to facilitate these commodities. Other commodities are also serviced within DMCC, and businesses with activities not related to commodities also take advantage of setting up at the JLT free zone.
DMCC members are offered highly attractive benefits under a free zone status including a secure regulated environment. As the first sector-specific UAE free zone authority to offer freehold business premises, DMCC has implemented a dedicated compliance policy in the organisation, which is in line with the compliance related laws and regulations of the UAE Federal Government and competent international bodies.
