The body responsible for environmental issues in Oman is the Ministry of Environment and Climatic Affairs. The Ministry of required by law to regulate a variety of activities relating to pollution (e.g. Ministerial Decision 107 / 2013 requires keeping records of private sector equipment and activities that could deplete ozone - link ) However, it does not appear that the Ministry makes any of the information it collects available to the public.
