Technical Regulation for Expiration dates for food products - Part 1: Mandatory expiration dates
This draft technical regulation is concerned with the maximum shelf life permitted for food products likely to perish under appropriate packaging and specific storage conditions. It also establishes the most important requirements for shelf life labelling of all food products.
In 23 September 2020, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia notified WTO (SPS) about this Technical Regulation (G/SPS/N/SAU/435). In this technical regulation, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia inserts a new item related to the expiration date of frozen chicken, which states: "The expiration date of whole frozen chicken and its pieces is 3 months.".
