The Gulf Cooperation Council’s (GCC) technical committee for chemical and textile products submitted 70 draft standards on chemical and textile products to the secretariat general of the GCC Standardisation Organisation (GSO) during its 25th meeting held recently. The products include personal protection equipment and clothes for fire-fighting and other tasks.

The products also include garments used in the safety, detergents and paint industries and plastic products, shoes, leather products and school bags. The standards cover a few environmental ones as well, according to a news agency report in the Middle East.

The new standards will help improve the level of quality and safety of the covered products, facilitate commercial exchange between GCC countries and other countries, increase the competitiveness of GCC products in global markets, and protect GCC citizens, according to Abdullah Al Maeeni, director general of the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology, who said the drafts will be submitted at the next meeting of the technical council and the ministerial council of the GSO.

The United Arab Emirates chaired the virtual meeting attended by GSO members.
