The Abu Dhabi Commercial Signage Regulations, which govern commercial signs on buildings have launched a new interactive tool, which it says will make it even simpler for business owners and signage manufacturers to adhere to guidelines designed to enhance the appearance of building fronts and minimise ‘visual clutter’.
Over 70,000 businesses have applied the regulations since their launch in 2011 and 8,500 new businesses were required to apply the regulations.
Abdulla Al Sahi, executive director, corporate services sector, UPC, said: Adherence to the Commercial Signage Regulations is important to the Emirate’s future vision and is in accord with the guiding principles of Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, which calls for more liveable, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing public spaces across the Emirate in line with the Estidama guiding principles.
The Regulations cover the type, size and location of any sign advertising a business inside a building, be it a villa, a retail outlet or commercial tower.
The Commercial Signage Regulations will provide developers with clear guidelines and standards for permitted signage typologies, the location and position of a sign on a building, as well as its specifications and dimensions.
