Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture) is proud to announce that it has earned multiple accreditations in four new International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards. These certifications are in Business Continuity Management Systems (ISO 22301:2019) and Risk Management Systems (ISO 31000:2018). Dubai Culture also received the (ISO 44001:2017) accreditation in Collaborative Business Relationships Management Systems and another accreditation in (ISO 37000:2021) Governance Management Systems, making it the first cultural institution globally to attain such a distinction, aligning with its efforts to implement international best practices to empower the culture and arts sector.

The new certifications affirm our possession of an integrated management system, with a clear methodology in partnership and crisis management, focusing on corporate governance and its various applications. This reflects the effectiveness of our strategies for an inclusive work environment, enriching the local cultural and artistic scene.”
Rashed Aref Al Shaikh, Director of the Strategy and Corporate Excellence Department at Dubai Culture, commented: “These certifications highlight the extensive efforts made by the Authority to enhance organisational and administrative performance, empower its workforce, and foster a spirit of innovation.
