SALEEM – New Registration Procedure for Saudi Arabia

18.01.2019Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi

Launch of the online portal SABER on January 1, 2019

Exclusive service from TÜV Rheinland for a quick certification process - "Letter of Recognition"

SASO's (Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization)

web-based tool SABER to apply for certification / registration of products and shipments under the SALEEM program was launched on January 1, 2019. SABER is the communication tool between registered certification bodies and SASO. In addition, SABER is used to apply for shipments- and product certifications.

In the new conformity assessment specification, the product will be differentiated according to the product's customs code (HS code). Controlled products must meet the requirements of the new technical regulations (TRs). So far, about half of the planned 50 Technical Regulations are published.

The product information can be entered into SABER by the importer or the certification body. If the entry is made by the importer, it must be ensured that the latter chooses the certification body "TUV Rheinland LGA Products GmbH". A shipment certificate for each consignment is mandatory for clearance at KSA ports & borders.

TÜV Rheinland offers companies which export to Saudi Arabia a special service in order to create the necessary conditions for product certification prior to the actual shipment. TÜV Rheinland is accredited for most of the existing technical regulations and thus a reliable partner for your market entry into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The "Letter of Recognition" (LoR) verifies before the actual certification that the products regulated in Saudi Arabia meet the local requirements. This enables manufacturers to have a smooth and fast certification process at the time of shipment.

It is important that your importer selects TÜV Rheinland as the certification body in the online portal SABER.

We are happy to inform you about the specific process.
