For data controllers

ADGM’s Data Protection Regulations 2021 require every ADGM registered entity that processes personal information (i.e. a ’Data Controller’) to register with the Office of Data Protection at the Registration Authority and renew its registration annually. Failure to do so is a contravention of the Data Protection Regulations 2021.

The Office of Data Protection maintains a register of Data Controllers in ADGM as a part of its regulatory functions and publishes the register publically in order to promote transparency and openness.

The Data Controller Register is incorporated within the ADGM Public Register of companies. To view whether an ADGM registered company is a Data Controller, search the Public Register for that entity and once selected, click on the ‘Data Protection’ tab.
