Reinforcement of testing, inspection and CoC requirements by KSA Authorities

KSA Authorities reinforce requirements of testing, inspection and CoC for the Export of Products into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

All exporters are informed of the following additional requirements for the export of their products to Saudi Arabia.

The KSA authorities have reinforced that shipments of the following product categories should be sampled for testing, inspected and issued with a Certificate of Conformity (CoC):

  • Toys
  • Electrical and Electronic Products
  • Cosmetics and Perfumes
  • Vehicles and Vehicle Spare Parts

The test requirements can be fulfilled by Intertek.

The successful Test Reports along with the shipment invoice, inspection report and CoC should be made available electronically to the KSA Customs. A hardcopy of the CoC should be submitted to KSA Customs as usual for the clearance of the shipment.

Shipments of products arriving in KSA that cannot be tested locally, nor accompanied with a CoC, will be returned back to its country of export.

Exporters are kindly requested to comply with this requirement to avoid any complication at KSA ports and borders.

We bring to your attention that the KSA authorities have also indicated that they will now be reinforcing the requirements for Certificates of Conformity for additional products not currently included in the current scope of the KSA programme.

Further information on the above can be obtained from your nearest Intertek Country Office or email us at, and will be made available as and when it is made known to us.
