Intertek Approved by MoCI for CoC's for New Vehicles to Saudi Arabia

Exporting New Vehicles to Saudi Arabia? Only Certificates of Conformity issued by Intertek are recognised by The Customs Authority of Saudi Arabia.

8th February 2011


Exporters of new vehicles to Saudi Arabia are reminded that they must provide a Certificate of Conformity for Customs clearance. Only Intertek has been approved by the MoCI to issue CoCs for new vehicles and only Intertek's CoCs are recognised by Saudi Customs, MoCI and SASO as proof of compliance of the vehicles and accepted for Customs clearance.

New vehicles arriving without a CoC or with a CoC issued by an unauthorised body will be held for further inspection and the exporter would be liable for the costs incurred on account of the inspection and storage of the vehicles and could additionally experience severe delays in Customs clearance.

The CoC should be obtained by all vehicle Importers/ Exporters in their country of export/origin and this requirement has been mandatorily enforced since 7 December 2010 as per the Saudi Customs article published on their official website. This can also be viewed by clicking here.
