The UAE applies a dark sky policy to control the lighting of buildings and grants a grace period to violators

rawda samy - | UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a dark sky regulation in place to control building lighting, and those who break it receive a grace period.

Abu Dhabi has announced a 'dark sky' regulation that will monitor the lights inside homes and offices.

In addition to public buildings, roadways, parks, beaches, and private spaces, regulations will be implemented throughout all of these areas, and those who violate them will be given a grace period to change their lights to comply with the regulations.

The new 'Dark Sky Policy' announced on Wednesday will subject the lights inside Abu Dhabi's homes and offices to quality control checks.

According to the emirate's Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), the policy would provide a blueprint for lighting practices in order to address the "escalating concern of light pollution."

The goal is to minimize the use of artificial light by addressing the issue of excessive or improper use.

Abu Dhabi will begin implementing new lighting regulations for buildings.

In the near future, Abu Dhabi will begin implementing new lighting standards for buildings.

The authority states that this would entail evaluating the interior lighting of private spaces like homes and offices to ascertain how much it permeates the surrounding area.

The policy's rules, which will apply to both the public and private sectors, will address a number of major concerns, including both newly installed and already existing outdoor lighting. However, we will not participate in cultural celebrations and festivities.

We have implemented a strategy for addressing light pollution in conjunction with the implementation of awareness programs.

A variety of settings, including public buildings, streets, parks, beaches, commercial organizations, open and undeveloped spaces, agricultural and industrial areas, and other locations, will see the implementation of regulations.

These include motion-activated security lighting, shielded illumination, exterior and facade lighting, and a coordinated shutdown of non-security lighting at midnight. Additionally, they feature motion-activated security lighting.
