What is Saber electronic platform?


The Saudi Standards, Metrology, and Quality Organization (SASO) called on manufacturers and importers to register their products on the Saber Platform as a mandatory procedure to place both locally manufactured and imported products in the Saudi market.

Saber electronic platform was launched on January 1, 2019, by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO), as a replacement to the manual system of issuing Shipment conformity certificates to ensure a high level of quality and safety of products.

Saber implementation developed by SASO aimed to electronically register and issue conformity certificates for imported and local products.

The most prominent benefit achieved by transferring to Saber is that importers can complete the required conformity assessment in the country of origin through a third party (SASO Approved Bodies)

This enables a quick and easy clearance process at Saudi ports, as the required certificates were previously issued, which ensures product compliance with the relevant technical regulations and conformity to standards.

Required documents to register on Saber

  1. Registration number and expiry date.
  2. ID no associated with the commercial register.
  3. A copy of the signature of the employee responsible for the facility.
  4. A copy of the facility stamp.

How to get a Saber certificate?

Before explaining further, please note that there are different certificates that can be issued through Saber. Their procedures and requirements vary from one to another. Following are the three certificates that can be issued through Saber for imported products:

  • Product Certificate of Conformity (PCoC)
  • Shipment Certificate of Conformity (SCoC)
  • Self-Declaration Certificate

Here are common steps that will be followed to issue any of these three certificates:

  • The importer or manufacturer is obliged to create an account on Saber to be allowed to apply for the certificate and please note that Saudi commercial registration is required for it.
  • To identify the required certificates for a specific product it must be categorized on Saber by searching by the Product name or HS- Code, then the system recognizes the product and shows its required certificate/seld-declaration.

Product Certificate of Conformity (PCoC)

Basically the Product Certificate of Conformity (PCoC) is required for the imported regulated products in accordance with technical regulations, as SASO published a list of technical regulations that cover products which require conformity assessment and issuing the product certificate. The importer must select through Saber a SASO approved body to carry out the conformity assessment to issue the certificate.

Shipment Certificate of Conformity (SCoC)

The Shipment Certificate of Conformity (SCoC) is required for imported products both for regulated and non-regulated to complete the clearance process. It can be obtained only after issuing the product certificate in case of regulated imported products, and after issuing the Self-Declaration in case of non-regulated imported products.

Self-Declaration Certificate

The self- Declaration Certificate is required for non-regulated products both locally manufactured and imported. The manufacturer of the importer applies to issue it via Saber and takes responsibility for the conformity of the product to Saudi Standards.

Who can apply for Saber certificates?

To issue any Saber Certificate an account on Saber is mandatory and only the importers and local manufacturers with a Saudi commercial registration can have a Saber account and then they will apply for certificates.
The Quality Services & Trade LLC is an trusted consultant to facilitate and ensures an expert service to carry out the conformity assessment and issue the certificate.
