The GCC Organization for Standardization is actively involved in celebrating the Arab Standardization Day every March 25, along with other Arab standardization bodies. This year’s theme for the event is “Standardization for a prosperous economy and a vibrant and sustainable society”. Saud bin Nasser Al-Khasibi, Chairman of the GCC Organization for Standardization, emphasized the importance of standardization in improving lifestyles, supporting quality of life, ensuring safety and sustainability, and promoting sustainability.

Al-Khasibi stressed that standardization is key in establishing laws, regulations and standard specifications to promote environmentally responsible practices. The GCC Organization for Standardization collaborates with national standardization bodies in member states and international and regional organizations to develop Gulf standard specifications and technical regulations. Over 27,000 Gulf standards and technical regulations covering various goods and products have been issued to date.

Standardization activities play a vital role in raising the quality of goods, products and services, promoting healthy competition, ensuring safety and quality, supporting national products, reducing technical barriers and facilitating trade. In addition to this, it contributes to sustainability by preparing laws and standard specifications for environmentally responsible practices such as waste reduction, energy efficiency improvement and the promotion of clean and renewable energy.

Al-Khasibi announced that the organization has begun coordinating with member states to implement technical regulations to preserve water resources and ensure their sustainability. He expressed gratitude for the efforts of international, regional and national organizations in the field of standardization as well as gratitude to all those involved in its activities including Arab Standardization Bodies who choose a logo each year to celebrate this momentous occasion.
