Saudi Arabia Expands List of Products Subject to Mandatory Registration on SABER Platform
The SABER platform was initially launched by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO) through the Saudi Product Safety Program named "SALEEM" on January 1, 2019.
The SABER allows traders to issue the required conformity certificates and shipment certificates of conformity for products that enter the Saudi market.
The platform is going to be the only system for clearing products through the KSA customs. We remind you that as soon as the product type becomes subject to the technical regulations requirements, the SASO CoC cannot be issued on paper but only through the SABER platform. If the product is a non-regulated one, the importer can upload a self-declaration of conformity showing the compliance of the product with the Saudi standard and taking responsibility for the product.
Please, remember if the product is the regulated one, the shipment first must be verified by the Certification body. If a valid CoC is confirmed a Shipment Certificate of Conformity is also issued online on SABER and valid for that specific shipment only.
Any shipment orders that are not issued by SABER will be deceased except for those that have a CoC issued before the validity date of the TR for the specific product.
We kindly remind you that only a resident of the KSA, a local representative or an importer can apply for approvals.
Please, also note that starting from January 15, 2020 the list of products that require mandatory registration on SABER has been significantly extended.
