Exporting to Saudi Arabia – Benefit from our expertise

Gain access to a promising market with DIN CERTCO certification

Saudi Arabia is one of the most dynamic countries in the world economy. If you are a manufacturer or an agent, you can benefit from Saudi Arabia's economic upswing by exporting goods there. However, successfully entering new sales markets requires in-depth specialist knowledge. Our experts have such knowledge and will happily make it available to you.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wants to boost its international trade, but has specific certification requirements on imported goods. Exporting goods to Saudi Arabia is only possible when your products meet stipulated criteria. Such criteria can be verified by certifications recognized by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO). These certifications need to be presented to the customs authorities at the time of import.

We provide the required SASO certifications according to your specific circumstances. You will then be able to gain entry to the market. Benefits to you: Save on the need to acquire your own expertise on the wide range of requirements and prerequisites for accessing the market.

Find out now how our experts can help you with international approvals on exporting to Saudi Arabia.

Quick and easy acquisition of a Certificate of Conformity for Saudi Arabia

As part of its "Saudi Arabia Vision 2030," SASO has two strategic goals to boost the country’s (foreign) trade: to build consumer confidence in the products available on the market, and to guarantee fair trade between buyers and sellers.

Accordingly, the SALEEM product safety program has been launched. This sets out “technical regulations” for numerous product groups. The regulations have binding clauses on technical requirements, the standards to be applied, and conformity assessment procedures.

Products regulated under SALEEM require a 1-year-long valid Product Certificate of Conformity, and a Shipment Certificate of Conformity per shipment. The certifications confirm that your goods comply with regulations specific to the country. The certificates are registered via the SABER portal.

We help you to obtain the necessary certificates quickly and problem-free and thereby provide the support you need to gain access to the Saudi Arabian market. A recognized credential means you document conformity with Saudi Arabia's national objectives and benefit from faster international market access while ensuring that your shipment arrives at its destination safely and on time.

Three steps to your Certificate of Conformity for exporting to Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabian customs authorities have increased the monitoring of shipments coming from abroad. Appropriate certifications are mandatory for regulated products to gain customs clearance.

When issuing a certificate, we proceed as follows:

  • Applications for certification in the SABER system are checked and the documentation reviewed
  • Products and/or factories (if required) undergo inspection
  • A Certificate of Conformity (CoC) for the product is issued

We also certify export products to conform with other programs

SASO's SALEEM program can require other certificates in addition to product and shipment certifications. Accordingly, products that could pose a risk to consumers and the environment due to their nature, application, safety and performance aspects must be marked with the Saudi Quality Mark (SQM). The certification process for such products includes recurrent visits to production sites, taking test samples, and evaluating production processes and management systems.

Shipments of food and cosmetic products require certification through a separate process regulated by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA). As an approved certification authority in Germany, we can also carry out the necessary tests for this program and issue you with the relevant certificates, e.g., for exporting cosmetic products to Saudi Arabia.

We also offer the following certifications:

  • Saudi Water Efficiency Label for sanitary products
  • Saudi IECEE Recognition Certificate for IT and electrical household products
  • Saudi Energy Efficiency Label for electrical household appliances, lights and lamps as well as electric motors
  • G-mark (valid not just for Saudi Arabia, but in all Gulf States) for electrical household appliances
