SASO Certificate Update: Degradable Plastic Products
The Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (SASO) is now enforcing a Technical Regulation for Degradable Plastic Products and SASO Certificate issuance will shortly depend on exporter’s complying.
The new regulation stipulates that certain types of disposable plastic products that are made from poly-propylene and poly-ethylene, and have a film thickness of less than or equal to 250microns, must be oxo-biodegradable and bear the below logo:
SASO has given a ‘grace period’ of until 12th of December 2017 and importers and exporters have until then to make sure their products comply.
Until this date, the importer or exporter of the product can provide an undertaking letter stating that they have received notice of the new regulations and are putting in place the appropriate measures to ensure they comply to the regulation by the December deadline.
In order to register your products for the SASO oxo-biodegradable logo, an application will need to be made to SASO for each product you need licensing and the products will need to meet all of the requirements set out in SASO Regulation no. M.A-156-16-03-03.
