Bahrain bans plastic bottles with capacity less than 200ml

Starting today, Bahrain will not allow the usage of plastic bottles with a capacity less than 200 millilitres. The move aims to reduce the impact of plastic waste on the environment.

According to the Testing and Metrology Directorate, the ban is on the production, distribution, and import of pre-packed plastic water bottles with a volume of fewer than 200 millilitres.

The ministry would also not allow entry to shipments with said bottles, Assistant Undersecretary for Domestic and Foreign Trade said.

The new decision also applies to local factories, banning them from supplying the water bottles into Bahraini markets.
