Oman has now published it’s “Barcoding System” requirements in Senate of Oman Ministry of Health requirement MH/DGMS/DSS/M/7043 dated 26/10/2016.
The legislation is for pharmaceutical product sold into Oman under tender.
The implementation timing is as follows:
- 31 December 2017: GS1 Data Matrix containing GTIN, Lot and Expiry
- 31 December 2018: Addition of a serial number
The requirements appear to be in line with GS1 standards as GS1 have been working closely with the Oman authorities. However, there are not many details in the short requirement statement.
