    After the formation of the United Arab Emirates in 1971, a Currency Board was established in May 1973, mandated simply to issue the UAE Dirham to replace existing currencies in use at the time. This Currency Board did not possess any real central bank powers. As the UAE’s economy developed, it became evident that the UAE needed a Central Bank to govern its economic development and its growing network of local and foreign banks. On 10 December 1980, the Currency Board became the Central Bank of the UAE. The Central Bank was tasked with the organisation of the UAE’s monetary, credit, and banking policy. Federal Decree-Law No 14/2018 regarding the Central Bank & Organisation of Financial Institutions and Activities (CBOFIA) has enhanced the authority and role of the Central Bank over the licensing and regulation of all financial institutions and financial activities within its borders. This commentary highlights some of the changes introduced by Federal Decree-Law No 14/2018. Emphasis will be placed on how this law ensures that a wide range of financial and banking practices are in accordance with international standards. Furthermore, attention will be given to emerging financial activities and financial products not governed by previous legislation.
