Exporting/Importing to Saudi Arabia – Update on mandatory requirement of Product Images and validity of S-CoCs in SABER
We would like to inform you that starting from 21st July 2022 onwards, the Saudi Standards and Metrology Organization (SASO) has enforced the mandatory requirement of uploading Product images in SABER for non-regulated products.
For regulated products, the requirement of uploading Product images in SABER will be enforced from 24th July 2022 onwards. It is mandatory to upload at least the below types of images while applying for P-CoC in SABER:
- Front View of the Product
- Markings/Label/Rating Plate (wherever applicable, if not, a general Product image can be uploaded)
Apart from the above mandatory images, the Applicant may also chose to optionally upload a general Product image and image of the Product’s packaging.
Further, SASO has also enhanced the SABER platform to set the validity of S-CoC to 2 months from its issuance date.
