Boycott of Qatar is not affecting product certification

According to well informed contacts within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the current political issues between Qatar and neighboring countries in the Gulf region (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain) plus Egypt, will not affect the current GSO certification/G-marking scheme for electrical equipment and toys.

Hence, at least for the time being, market access for such products to Qatar is unaffected. 
It may, however, soon be imposed economic embargo towards Qatar by these other states. So, despite recent efforts by the US and Kuwait, it seems that the dispute is further escalating.
