       Adoption of International Standards in the Gulf Region

National Adoption

• ISO Standards are used and referenced in company standards/
  specifications of GCC Countries

• Involvement of GCC Countries in ISO TC SC/working groups       Adoption
  of ISO standards

• Mirror Working Groups within oil & gas companies on specific subjects –
  ISO new work items – Qatar Petroleum & Saudi ARAMCO examples.

• Mirror national working groups to ISO TC 67 & GSO TC7. Qatar
  Petroleum example (subsidiaries and joint venture companies).
       Adoption of International Standards in the Gulf Region

Regional Adoption

• GSO TC 7 members were urged by to join TC 67, TC 28 and TC193
  as P or O members to facilitate the adoption of ISO Standards.

• Committee program includes the adoption of wide range of ISO
  standards as Gulf Standards, as proposed by member countries,
  was established.

• The TC 7 program covers standards under the scope of TC 67, TC
  28 and TC193

• Mirror Working Groups for Gulf Standards development and
  adoption of ISO Standards were established to facilitate the above
