Exporting/Importing to Saudi Arabia – Transition of Standards SASO IEC 60950-1 and SASO IEC 60065 to SASO IEC 62368-1
SASO has announced the soft transition of the Standards SASO-IEC-60950-1 and SASO-IEC-60065 to SASO-IEC-62368-1 for Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment.
SASO has adopted IEC 62368-1/2018 version of the International Standard as SASO-IEC-62368-1/2020 without any technical modifications and this was published in the KSA Official Gazette on 27th November 2020. The effective implementation date of SASO-IEC-62368/2020 is 1st July 2021.
Products that are currently required to be certified under the SASO IECEE Recognition Certificate (SIRC) to the existing Standards SASO-IEC-60950-1 and SASO-IEC-60065 are eligible to receive the SIRC at the moment and the SIRC will continue to remain valid until its expiry date. However, starting from 1st July 2021, SASO will be only accepting Test Reports according to SASO-IEC-62368-1/2020 version for the issuance of SIRC.
Similarly, starting from 1st July 2021, Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment outside the scope of SIRC also need to comply with the requirements of SASO-IEC-62368-1/2020 in order to obtain the P-CoCs/S-CoCs on SABER Platform. Existing P-CoCs/S-CoCs issued prior to this implementation date will continue to remain valid until their expiry dates.
Intertek Government and Trade Services (GTS) is facilitating the process for obtaining the SIRC for interested Applicants. This unique benefit from Intertek will expedite the application and registration process on SABER to obtain the P-CoC and S-CoC. Intertek Government and Trade Services (GTS) is also a SASO approved Certification Body to issue the necessary P-CoCs/S-CoCs for Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment outside the scope of SIRC.
