Exporting to Saudi Arabia – new SASO regulations

To counter environmental and health risks, the Saudi standards authority (SASO) will introduce new regulatory requirements for oxo-biodegradable plastics packaging materials from September 2019. Imported products will be checked by customs and will have to comply with the new regulations.  Customs offices of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will hold a list of SASO-registered suppliers/factories. Importers will only deal with these suppliers – no shipment will be customs-cleared if the suppliers of the plastic products are not on the list.

All plastic products entering Saudi Arabia will have to display the official OXO-Biodegradable logo, which can only be used by registered suppliers/factories who follow the ‘SASO Technical Regulation for Degradable Plastic Products’.
