Corporate Governance

A practical guide

DMCC is constantly endeavouring to deliver the greatest long term benefits to our member companies

Together with Hawkamah, we have developed the DMCC Corporate Governance – Practical Guidance to enable our members to be better governed and more successful.



The guidance covers five key areas and includes a range of tools and templates that can be used in its current form or adapted to suit your business needs:

  • Commitment to corporate governance
  • Structure and functioning of the board/ governing body
  • Control environment
  • Transparency and disclosure
  • Stakeholders and stakeholder rights

Note: This is a consultative paper. DMCC is seeking public feedback before issuing the final version.

Aside from the business benefits that will accrue from following this guidance, we are making an additional commitment to our members. In 2015 we will invite our members for a voluntary DMCC corporate governance assessment. Those that attain the basic level of corporate governance or greater will qualify for particular incentives from DMCC.
