Exporting/Importing to Saudi Arabia – Mandatory requirement of SIRC and EE Registration for Lighting accessories

Manufacturers and Exporters of products to the KSA are hereby informed about SASO’s recent notification to Certification Bodies clarifying the mandatory requirement of SASO IECEE Recognition Certificate (SIRC) and Energy Efficiency (EE) registration for Lighting accessories. It is to be noted that EE Registration for Lighting accessories under the scope of SASO 2902 was implemented from 1st January 2019 and SIRC for Lighting products including Lighting accessories was implemented from 1st February 2019.

Accordingly, please be informed of the below for products classified under KSA Customs Tariff Code 850431000000:

  • If your product is a Lighting accessory such as transformer, power supply and power converter and other similar parts, you are required to apply for the SIRC (through MANEH portal) and EE Registration (through SLS portal) prior to applying for Certification in SABER. 
  • If your product is a Transformer or other spare part other than Lighting accessories, then Intertek will evaluate your product’s compliance to requirements of the Technical Regulation for Low Voltage Electrical Equipment and Appliances (Non G-mark) and applicable Standards prior to issuance of P-CoC and S-CoC in SABER.

Intertek Government and Trade Services (GTS) is facilitating the process for obtaining the SIRC and EE Registration. This unique benefit from Intertek will expedite the application and registration process on SABER to obtain the mandatory Product Certificates of Conformity  (P-CoCs) and Shipment Certificates of Conformity (S-CoCs).
