Saudi Arabia is expected to publish a national chemical safety program as early as mid-2020.
The program will collect data on all chemicals used and manufactured in the country.
It will further compile a national inventory used to develop new and strengthen existing regulations on the management of chemicals.
Despite Saudi Arabia’s 2006 law governing the import and management of chemicals (Royal Decree No. M/38) and the its ratification of the UN's Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions on hazardous chemicals and waste, the country has no national scheme currently in place.
There is no additional information available at this time.
