Do I Need A Certificate For Exporting To Saudi Arabia?

Product Certificate of Conformity (Product CoC)

Products that are covered by the mandatory Technical Regulations are required to be issued with a Product Certificate of Conformity (Product CoC) on SABER (Refer to Schedule of Enforcements of Technical Regulations on SABER). Other products can be certified on the respective approved Certification Bodies’ IT system such as Intertek’s IT platform.

It may be noted that Food products, Cosmetics and Perfumery Products and Tobacco Products are covered by Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) Regulations and therefore are outside the Saudi Product Safety Programm (SALEEM)e. These products are subject to SFDA’s specific certification requirements.

Subject to the nature and type of products and the applicable Technical Regulations, the following Product Certification process is applicable.

Products under equivalent certification

For products under equivalent certification, applicants can Apply their request for Product CoC directly on SABER.

*Note: As an interim measure until the necessary IT link is established between SABER and GSO GCTS platforms, products under the G-Mark certification would need to be processed by the relevant SASO approved Certification Body (CB) for obtaining the Product CoC.

Products not covered under equivalent certification

For Products Not Covered Under Equivalent Certification, Applicants should Apply their Request for Product CoC directly on the SABER platform and coordinate the certification of their products by the SASO approved CB.

Upon successful review, the CB will approve the Product CoC on SABER platform which will be available for review on the SABER platform for the Applicants.
