Gulf states plan uniform stamp for all products

posted on 05/11/2003: 820 views


GCC states are planning to put a uniform stamp on all products moving within their markets to facilitate internal trade and ensure they conform to specifications enforced in the 22-year-old economic and political group. Ministers in charge of goods specifications were due to meet in Doha today to discuss the plan which experts said would give a strong push to the fledgling GCC customs union.



The meeting of the GCC's Standardisation and Metrology Commission is the first high-level talks on such an issue since the UAE and its five partners in the GCC launched their long-awaited historic customs union on January 1. "The talks will cover the planned uniform slogan or stamp to be placed on goods to ensure they meet existing standards and specifications," said Walid bin Falah Al Mansouri, Director General of the UAE Authority for Standardisation and Metrology. "This plan will help remove barriers and obstacles for the movement of goods within the GCC and boost consumers' confidence in products bearing this stamp since it means that the product has been checked by the competent authorities."
