The GCC Standardization Organization is actively involved in the celebration of 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 Standardization Organization, emphasized the importance of standardization in improving lifestyles, supporting quality of life, ensuring safety and sustainability, and enhancing sustainability.

Al-Khasibi highlighted that standardization plays a crucial role in establishing legislation, regulations, and standard specifications to promote environmentally responsible practices. The GCC Standardization Organization has collaborated with national standardization bodies in member states and international and regional organizations to develop Gulf standard specifications and technical regulations. To date, over 27 thousand Gulf standards and technical regulations have been issued covering various goods and products.

It also ensures safety and quality standards while supporting national products, reducing technical barriers, facilitating trade exchange. Additionally, standardization contributes to sustainability by preparing legislation and standard specifications for environmentally responsible practices while protecting the environment through waste reduction, energy efficiency improvement, clean energy promotion.

Al-Khasibi announced that the organization has started coordinating with member states on implementing technical regulations to conserve water resources while ensuring their sustainability. He expressed appreciation for the efforts of international, regional, national organizations in the field of standardization as well as gratitude to the Arab Organization for Industrial Development (ARID), Standardization (STD), Mining (MIN), member states involved in standardisation activities as well as all those working towards its goal.

The Arab Standardization Day coincides with the anniversary of the founding of the Arab Organization for Standardization (AROSM) on March 25th in 1968. AROSM’s activities were later merged within ARID & MIN.
