SABER Update: 20th August 2019

SASO (Saudi Arabia Standards Organisation) have already implemented and enforced Technical Regulations for many product categories. They have recently announced new additions to the list of product categories where SABER registration will become mandatory in the coming months.

For these products, Product & Shipment Certificates of Conformity must only be processed using the new online SABER platform (rather than the traditional SASO Certificate of Conformity).

Below is a list of the latest product categories being rolled out between the months of November 2019 to January 2020. If your products are listed below, it’s important to ensure that you are prepared for SABER. To discuss how SABER may affect your shipments, get in contact today.
