ADGM issues Guidance on the legal framework that applies to activities undertaken within ADGM, with the intention to communicate and explain the principles that underpin that framework.  It is for information purposes only and is meant to assist persons operating within ADGM.

The Guidance has ADGM-wide scope, including across all three Authorities, and covers:

  • the approach taken by ADGM and its Authorities;
  • considerations that may be taken in exercising powers; and
  • interpretations of the legal and regulatory framework where required.

Guidance issued by ADGM is not legally binding on ADGM or its Authorities.

The three Authorities also issue Guidance that is relevant to their role and functions, which can be accessed through the links below:
