SASO Certification

As an accredited testing laboratory, we’ve helped thousands of manufacturers complete safety testing for their products and achieve SASO certificate.

1. SASO certification

SASO stands for Saudi Arabian Standards Organization. Many of the SASO standards are based on the safety standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The technicians of the SASO will check the SASO certificate submitted when the goods are imported into the country. Otherwise, the products will be refused entry or samples will be taken to the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Industry and Commerce or the laboratory of SASO for testing, and if the tests are unqualified, the products will be refused entry into the country, and the exporting enterprises will bear all the costs.

The SASO certificate is not only for products imported from abroad, but also applies to products manufactured in Saudi Arabia.

1. Pre-shipment Compliance Verification
This method is most suitable for exporters or manufacturers with very few shipments. Pre-shipment Inspection (PSI) and Pre-shipment Test (PST) are requested before each shipment. If both are qualified, you will obtain a CoC certificate.

2. Product Registration
This method is suitable for the vast majority of exporters or manufacturers. Although PSI is necessary for each shipment, each batch of goods do not have to perform PST. A Statement for Registration(SfR) will be issued by submitting a Declaration of Conformity, providing test reports that demonstrate compliance with the importing country and relevant international or national standards, and stating that the product meets the basic requirements and national differences of the importing country.

3. Type Approval
This method can save inspection fees or testing fees before each shipment, simplify application process and ensure delivery time, so it is favored by some large companies that ship frequently or on a large scale and pay attention to quality and reputation. Exporters or manufacturers will receive the Statement for Licence (SfL) only if the products fully comply with the mandatory standards of the importing and exporting countries. The certificate is valid for one year and can be renewed by submitting an updated factory inspection report, paying an annual fee and being reviewed by RLC. Products with SfL no longer need to be inspected before each shipment, but reduced to a few sampling inspections per year (usually 2-3 times/year, depending on the product condition).

Below are the general application steps for achieving SASO certificate. Have questions or not sure where to start? Please fill out our short form, our expert will be glad to assist further.
