ADGM registered entities that process Personal Data (i.e. Data Controllers) as well as other entities appointed to process personal data on their behalf (i.e. Data Processors), are required to be registered with the Registration Authority. Data protection registrations must be renewed annually, while any change in particulars requires an ad hoc notification.

Additionally, the processing of Sensitive Personal Data or transferring Personal Data out of the ADGM may require a permit from the Registrar.

All data protection registration applications, renewals, notifications or permit applications must be submitted electronically via the Registration Authority’s Online Registry Solution: www.registration.adgm.com.

Note: The Office of Data Protection does NOT accept paper form applications on data protection matters. Please submit data protection applications electronically via: www.registration.adgm.com.
