Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) has published the ADGM healthcare regulations 2022, which adopt the emirate’s onshore healthcare legislation issued by the Department of Health Abu Dhabi (DoH) into financial centre’s legislative framework. As a result, ADGM’s registration authority retains the right to issue commercial licences to healthcare facilities operating within the organization’s jurisdiction.
The DoH will be responsible for undertaking all the regulatory obligations, including classification, supervision, monitoring, and enforcement of obligations relating to these healthcare facilities as well as professionals.
Mr. Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, CEO of the ADGM Registration Authority, commented that “ADGM has always been keen on strengthening the mutual strategic cooperation and institutional integration between the governmental bodies in Abu Dhabi to achieve the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.”
“In doing so, ADGM has signed an Agreement of Cooperation and Delegation with the health department to benefit from their experience in regulating and monitoring health, medical, and pharmaceutical entities operating within the centre’s jurisdiction,” Mr. Al Mazrouei shared.
“Adopting the Abu Dhabi onshore healthcare legislation in ADGM provides healthcare, medical, and pharmaceutical investors with comfort as well as assurance that ADGM and Abu Dhabi, as a whole, are aligned in regulating the healthcare sector,” the CEO added.
The new healthcare regulations make sure that all entities established in ADGM and licensed to practise any business or activity, including healthcare, medical treatment, prevention of disease, convalescence, medical products, health insurance, health education, outpatient treatment, and health as well as pharmaceutical research conducted by companies, hospitals, clinics, treatment centres, research centres, pharmacies, laboratories, whether they are public or private, and other persons operating in the public or private healthcare sector, obey the onshore requirements imposed by the DoH.
