The Saudi Standard, Metrology & Quality Organization (SASO) developed and manages the product safety, called SALEEM. If you intend to ship goods to Saudia or import to Saudia from rest of the world you must need the SASSO certification in both conditions. Every country is having some regulations in place that ensure imported goods meet certain standards. These standards include national security, quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards. Saudia uses third-party agencies to obtain the required testing, inspection, and certification services. This ensures the goods comply with import regulations of Saudia.
In spite of product registration certificate and product certificate of conformity SASO demands the factory audit that based on quality management system, product safety, traceability, environmental safety, resource management, stock management, production process and packing and quality control before shipment etc. Supplier must have a robust system as per their requirement.
Saudi Arabia relies on the third party services; imported goods to Saudi Arabia cannot be cleared by customs without the correct export documentation – specifically a SASO CoC (Saudi Arabia Certificate of Origin). A SASO CoC is a Certificate of Conformity that is specific to Saudi Arabia. This document certifies that the item has been successfully tested and inspected against the given criteria to meet the country’s quality and safety standards.
The SASO certificate is same like a passport for the shipment to clear customs. However even with a SASO, customs authorities reserve the right to administer additional inspections and test procedures, once the item arrives in Saudi Arabia.
Under SALEEM, product and shipment conformity program is operated by an online system named SABER. SABER has been gradually implemented by technical regulation (TR) since January 2019. In Feb-2020 the transition was completed. after passing the assessment, Importers of products regulated by the TR are required to register the products in the SABER system to obtain the Certificate of Conformity.
Certificate of conformity must be presented at Saudi customs for a smooth clearance of all product consignments to be imported/Exported to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
