The Saudi Arabian Standards Organization (SASO), is now enforcing the G-Mark Regulation for Low Voltage (LV) Electrical Products and Toys. Compliance with the G-Mark Technical Regulation is mandatory and will be required for shipment clearance at KSA Customs Ports and Borders alongside the SASO Certificate of Conformity (CoC).
G-Mark Low Voltage Electrical Products
Products affected by enforcement of the regulation are those included on “List 2” of the G-mark Technical Regulation BD-142004-01 for Low Voltage (LV) Electrical Products.
The 13 products currently affected are as follows:
We anticipate that more products will be added to the list by the GSO. Ensure you stay up to date and are notified of future changes as they happen by registering your details with our SASO Account Team via [email protected] or +44 01245 249002.
Each shipment of products will be verified under the scope of the G-Mark Regulation before a SASO Certificate of Conformity is issued.
This verification process will confirm the following;
- Presence of a valid GCTS Mark (including the QR code and identification number of the Notified Body which has issued the G-mark certification)
- Product packaging
- User manual (if applicable to the product in question)
- Gulf Type Examination Certificate (GTEC)
G-Mark and Toy Products
The Gulf Toy Technical Regulation (GTTR) Ref. BD131704-01 applies to all electrical and non-electrical toys.
Toys that fall within this regulation must be compliant with the standard EN 71, in addition electrical toys falling within this regulation must be compliant with standard IEC 62115.
A Certificate of Conformity will only be issued to GTTR toy products once they have a valid GSO conformity Tracking Symbol (GCTS). This must be marked on the product, product’s packaging and user manual (if one exists).
No need for guess work.
