Rules & Regulations

Consultation Papers

DME as a Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) licensed Authorized Market Institution (AMI) is required under AMI Module 9.2.1 to consult with and gain prior approval from the DFSA for any amendment to its business rules. DME will also consult with DME Members and Guaranteed Customers.

In urgent cases, the DFSA may, on written application by the AMI, dispense with prior consultation requirements. In this way, the Dubai International Financial Centre's Regulatory Law 2004 (as amended) makes AMIs accountable for their actions to the DFSA and gives the DFSA the powers of direction over AMIs.
