Certificate of Conformity for Exports to Saudi Arabia

For all exports to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a Conformity Assessment Programme has been implemented. All products require a Certificate of Conformity also referred to as a SASO CoC to enable them to be cleared through Saudi Customs.

Intertek continues to support the authorities in Saudi Arabia by being a service provider for its Conformity Assessment Programme.

The Saudi Arabia  Conformity Assessment Programme, which covers all goods, has a number of key objectives:

  • Protection of public health
  • Consumer safety
  • National security
  • Protection of religious and public morals
  • Protection of environment
  • Prevention of deceptive practices

Every consignment of imported goods must be accompanied by a Certificate of Conformity from an authorised inspection agency. Intertek is authorised to issue the Certificates of Conformity (CoC). They are needed to ensure customs clearance of shipments and confirm that the products comply with the relevant Saudi technical regulations and national, regional or international standards.

All imported consignments must bear a non-removable indication of origin. Those that do not will be held by Saudi Customs and the Importer will be asked to take corrective action or provide an undertaking that the offence will not be repeated. Failure to do so could result in a fine or goods being returned to their country of origin. For full details, read the complete Circular by Saudi Customs on Country of Origin Marking.
