Abu Dhabi bans plastic bags from today June 1

The first-ever ban on single-use plastic bags will be imposed across Abu Dhabi today to control environmental pollution in the United Arab Emirates.

It is important that you are aware of the new rules that will be implemented from today regarding the use of plastics. The Abu Dhabi government has announced a one-time ban on single-use plastic bags across Abu Dhabi to control environmental pollution in the United Arab Emirates. The ban came into effect today, June 1, 2022.

The EAD Abu Dhabi Environment Agency on Monday organized a workshop to train researchers from the EAD, the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development and the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority. It describes disposable plastic products and their alternatives in the capital.

The workshop took place after the introduction of the Integrated Single-Use Plastic Policy. The policy was endorsed by Sheikh Hamdan bin Saeed Al Nahyan, the ruler’s representative in the Al Dafra region and chairman of the EAT’s board of directors. It was launched in April 2022. .

The workshop explained about the tools that will help to effectively plan the implementation of the policy while ensuring a gradual reduction in the consumption of single-use plastic products throughout Abu Dhabi while encouraging the use of recyclable materials.

Bags for pharmacy bags, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, cereals and bread (knot bags) in pharmacies are exempt from the ban. Apart from this, large shopping bags, toys, waste bags of different sizes and types, postal parcels or magazines and newspapers designed for fashion or electronic gadgets are also exempted.

Bags for carrying plants, flowers and laundry are also excluded.

The ban came into effect on June 1, 2022. This will prevent all retailers from selling disposable plastic bags.

The workshop also outlined ways to implement regulatory rules aimed at regulating the transition in the life cycle from the consumption of environmentally friendly single-use plastic products to the consumption of many consumer goods.

What will be the role of inspectors?

According to technical standards approved by the Abu Dhabi Standards and Compliance Council (ADQCC), researchers will monitor the implementation of the single-use bag ban.

Some major retailers have recently signed a voluntary announcement in Abu Dhabi to support the implementation of the new policy and seek alternatives, resources and funding to support environmental protection.

These retailers and outlets will charge customers for alternative multi-purpose plastic shopping bags.

The agency, in collaboration with relevant organizations, will develop and implement plans to educate community members about the importance of using durable and multi-use alternatives to single-use products.
