The Arab Standardization Day, celebrated annually on March 25th, is a significant event for the GCC Standardization Organization and Arab standardization bodies. This year’s theme of “Standardization for a prosperous economy and a vibrant and sustainable society” highlights the importance of standardization in improving lifestyles, supporting quality of life, ensuring safety and sustainability, and enhancing sustainability.

Saud bin Nasser Al-Khasibi, Chairman of the GCC Standardization Organization, emphasized the significance of standardization in promoting environmentally responsible practices. He highlighted that standardization is crucial in establishing legislation, regulations, and standard specifications to ensure sustainable development. Over 27 thousand Gulf standards and technical regulations have been issued to date, covering various goods and products.

Standardization activities and requirements play a vital role in elevating the quality of goods, products, and services while promoting healthy competition. It also ensures safety and quality standards are met while supporting national products by reducing technical barriers that facilitate trade exchange. Additionally, standardization contributes to sustainability by preparing legislation and standard specifications for environmentally responsible practices such as waste reduction, energy efficiency improvement, clean energy promotion, water conservation implementation among others.

Al-Khasibi announced that the organization has begun coordinating with member states on implementing technical regulations to conserve water resources sustainably. He expressed gratitude to international organizations like IAEA for their efforts in promoting global cooperation on technical assistance for developing countries’ atomic energy programs. Furthermore, he appreciated regional organizations such as APSCO (Arabian Productive Society) for their contribution towards achieving sustainable development goals through technology transfer to members countries.
