The additional products and their KSA Customs Tariff Codes are listed below:

  • Ceramic Tiles

  • Other Paints and Varnishes 
    (KSA Customs Tariff Code 32089090)

The Importer declaration form on its approval by the Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources will include a system-generated barcode. Intertek will be verifying the submission of the approved Importer declaration form before finalising the S-CoCs in SABER.
