Exports to Saudi Arabia - Enforcement of SASO Technical Regulation for Degradable Plastic Products

SASO has recently announced the enforcement of the SASO Technical Regulation (SASO TR) for degradable plastic products. This SASO TR aims at ensuring that disposable plastic products made of polypropylene and polyethylene with a film thickness of less than, or equal to, 250microns that are generally used for packaging, such as carrier bags, wraps, and other similar applications, must be of the oxo-biodegradable type

All degradable plastic products being imported or locally manufactured in Saudi Arabia as a final product must bear the SASO “Oxo-biodegradable” logo.

Contact Intertek for the list of plastic products covered by this SASO TR and copies of the logo.
