RAK Economic Zone


It gives me pleasure to be introducing the first version of the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone’s Companies Regulations (“The Regulations”), released after the launch of Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ), under decree (2) of 2017, issued by His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, United Arab Emirates Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, to be a world-class government authority that oversees, regulates and consolidates the services, facilities, zones and clients of both Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) and RAK Investment Authority (RAKIA).

The Regulations give a transparent, best in class and coherent legal framework for investors and customers covering the applicable companies’ regulations applicable within the free zones.

The Regulations come into force on the date of issue and can also be accessed here.
