Throughout 2019 SASO (Saudi Arabian Standards Organization) have been gradually implementing products onto the SABER system.
As products are added onto the new system, they bring with them a newly written Technical Regulation (TR). Although many of the TRs have the previous regulations as a basis, they also have new requirements which many companies are being caught out by.
For many product types such as Textiles for Children, Detergents, and Batteries it is now a requirement that a Factory audit is in place in order for clearance to be arranged.
SASO has confirmed that ISO 9001 is not sufficient and that a SASO specific audit needs to be conducted encompassing subjects such as incoming material inspection, product test plans, processes and resource management.
As Saudi specialists we are able to arrange a fully SABER compliant audit anywhere in the world.
