Bahrain Mirror: Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism Zayed Al-Zayani announced that the Testing and Metrology Services Department received a number of requests to register and match the models of electric cars for 2020 and beyond, starting from January 1. These requests were transferred to the Gulf Standardization Organization in order to review technical reports and obtain certificates of conformity.

The minister revealed in his response to a question raised by Speaker of the House of Representatives Fawziya Zainal on the latest developments in the introduction of electric cars to the Bahraini market, that the ministerial decision on the adoption of the technical regulation of electric vehicles issued on January 28 will enter into force six months after its publication in the official newspaper, i.e. on July 29.

He added that since the beginning of this year, a number of researches were carried out in preparation for tightening control through the customs ports of Bahrain through coordination and cooperation with the Customs Risk Management Department in customs affairs to determine the correct harmonized system (HS) numbers for electrical vehicle products.
