Is it true that the marking of goods with the country of origin isn't just a requirement for Saudi Arabian shipment but also for other countries in that part of the world?

Several freight forwarders and the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce have been reminding exporters to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Countries from EU Member States that it is necessary that the actual name of the Country of Origin is written on the goods. The phrase European Community (EC) should be supplemented by the name of the actual member state. This is said to apply to: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the UAE, as well as Saudi Arabia.
