Important note: The Gulf Cooperation Council (“GCC”) region comprises Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. This publication highlights certain key developments in laws and regulations of the GCC countries. The legislative process in the GCC can be opaque. Draft legislation is generally not made publicly available nor the subject of official consultations. Timescales for enactment of legislation are not typically published. In practice, laws and regulations may come into effect without being published. Accordingly, it is difficult to anticipate the pace and scope of legislative change. Please note that Linklaters is not licensed to practice law in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or Saudi Arabia.
