The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) has modified and updated Qatar Construction Specifications (QCS) in co-operation with the private and public sectors, the Public Works Authority and Qatar General Organisation for Standardisation (QS).

The updates and modification include:
Putting new mechanisms in the design contracts that allow the diversification of the sources of importing building and construction materials while guaranteeing their quality in accordance with the international standards;
Allowing the use of the local and imported limestone in the construction of the asphalt layers and concrete works and other construction uses; Allowing the use of recycled materials in accordance with specified standards including building refuse such as rabble and lower non-asphalt layers.
