SASO Certificate of Conformity (CoC)
What is the SASO Certificate of Conformity (CoC)?
The SASO Certificate of Conformity (CoC), is a requirement for all regulated products exported to Saudi Arabia to ensure that they comply and conform to the relevant technical regulations covered by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO). It ensures that the product meets the Kingdom 2030 vision objectives in regards to developing the economy and trade methods that provide a quality lifestyle for Saudi citizens.
Issuance via Saber
Since the Saudi Product Safety Program “SALEEM” was launched-with the aim of providing a conformity assessment process with a more accessible and easier tool to verify and issue certificates of conformity to imported products. SASO CoC issuance was transferred to the new electronic platform “Saber”.
Saber became linked to “FASAH” to maintain the electronic processing and verifying for conformity assessment, and clearance requirements. The importers are required to create accounts on Saber, register their products, and choose one of SASO approved bodies enlisted on Saber platform -like Tabseer- to issue the required certificates of conformity.
After passing the conformity assessment, goods at the Saudi ports can then be cleared.
