• To investigate how SASO can help to increase the market share of HDPE within the KSA
• GPPA requested by the Royal Commission and GPCA (Craig Halgreen) to facilitate this process
1. Preliminary Meeting (24th July 2016) • Held in Dubai, UAE (Hosted by SABIC)
• Core group represented by resin makers only
• Key conclusion – the committee representing all the industry stakeholders to be set-up
(Resin Makers – Pipe Converters – End Users)
2. Second Meeting (26th September 2016) • Held in Riyadh, KSA (Hosted by SABIC)
• Attended by larger, more industry representative group
1. The committee accepted that SASO remit does not have the intended activity. The committee will prepare a set of objectives for SASO
2. The draft will be circulated for comment before it is given to SASO – SABIC (Abdulaziz Al-Sayyari) will present draft to SASO
3. SASO should nominate a voting member on TC138, the ISO Pipe Committee (UAE already has a voting member)
© 2007 GPPA
1. Can SASO police its Quality Mark adequately? All members agreed “cheating” on raw material quality origin
is a widespread threat
2. If not SASO can GPPA assist in this role?
3. Downstream pipe users need educating in the
design and maintenance of pipe quality GPPA Saudi Task Force – roadshow
5. Can GPPA supply typical specs, Test proceedings,
“That the Plastic Committee develop a structured approach to address challenges associated with the negative image on Plastics among the public and regulators and explore engaging a PR agency to develop a public awareness campaign.”
Business Plan 2017 - Proposal
• Networking: o1 Conference + 1 Workshop

get transferred under Advocacy oNeed to identify new initiatives for Thought Leadership o To be focused on 3 areas: capturing industry trends, creating awareness and/
or supporting advocacy efforts
• Advocacy: o Continue to advocate the benefits of plastics and counter the negative image
by engaging key stakeholders o Work with regulators to develop standards/ specifications for plastic
products/ applications
Plan for 2017 • 26 Feb – 2 March, flexible for global campaigns
• Ages 7-12
• Clean-up campaigns and school visits to be conducted. Member companies to establish educational programs and activities
• The campaign remains committed to waste management and consumption and not just recycling with a focus on the 3 Rs “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” and to showcase the benefits associated with recycling
• Engage governmental bodies
• Objectives of the campaign for 2017 are:
oRemain highly focused on education and come up with way new ways of educating youth while maintaining it as a fun activity
o To spread the campaign further into more cities around the region with the help of members
o To add one additional country with the help of member companies’ affiliate offices 31

• All GPCA Working Committees to participate
• Guest Speaker
• BoD to attend
• Ideas exchange between Committees – Discussion amongst the Chairs and VCs
of each committee
• Appreciation and Recognition
• Proposal from SPE to co-organize niche, “topical” events. For e.g. additives, blow moulding, injection moulding, extrusion, etc.
• GPCA’s recommendation for the PC is to look at these events on a case-to-case basis, not as a partnership
• SPE are proposing a partnership, offering a limited number of complimentary, annual membership to GPCA members
• 2017 calendar is fully booked so any potential events need to be scheduled in 2018
