    Dubai FSA Invites Regulatory Sandbox Applications for Summer Cohort

    April 22, 2020

    The Dubai FSA is inviting applications from local and international companies to apply to join its 2020 Summer Cohort. Successful cohort applicants will be invited to apply to enter the Dubai FSA version of the regulatory sandbox, known as the Innovation Testing License or ITL.

    The DFSA welcomes innovative technology-driven companies to apply through its website between May 01 and May 31. Firms must provide a clear explanation of their planned business model and the proposed innovative product or service. Dubai FSA will announce applicants accepted into the Summer Cohort on June 16, after which it will invite the applicants to submit an Innovation Testing License application by July 26.

    Since the inception of the Innovation Testing License in 2017,  Dubai FSA has accepted 25 companies into the cohort process, representing diverse business models from across the world. These have included digital Sukuk issuances using smart contracts, tokenized securities and debt offerings, tokenized crowdfunding, SME lending platforms, and the use of artificial intelligence in credit analysis. The Innovation Testing License enables companies to test innovative solutions in and from the Dubai International Financial Center. It provides companies with temporary relaxation of a limited set of regulatory requirements to test and develop concepts within the test environment.
