  • Appliances that run on gas and their accessories.
  • Reinforcement using Cement for Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles Iron & Steel Rods.

Implementation of SASO Quality Mark

Beginning in February 2021, the Saudi Quality Mark will also be required to be affixed on stand-alone plugs, socket outlets, and switches.

If the items being exported fall under the jurisdiction of the Saudi Standards, Metrology, and Quality Organization’s (SASO) Technical Regulations, then both the Shipment Certificate and the Product Certificate must be included in each package destined for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

These certificates provide evidence that the necessary technical requirements and standards have been met and complied with. The Saudi Arabian Standardization Organization (SASO) has introduced SABER, an electronic conformity assessment platform, in connection with the launch of the Saudi Product Safety Program (SALEEM).

SASO highly recommends that the Trade utilize this portal in order to apply for and receive a Product Certificate and a Shipment Certificate for products subject to SASO Technical Regulations. In addition, it is strongly suggested that the Trade submit a request for, and acquire, both a Self Declaration and a Shipment Certificate for items that are not controlled by any SASO Technical Regulation.

When did SQM become mandatory?

The SQM became mandatory for power strip items in August 2020, while it became obligatory for sockets in February 2021. Both of these dates refer to the future. Because of this, producers must submit an application for SQM certification for these goods as quickly as they can; if they do not, they will be unable to sell extension sockets and switches in Saudi Arabia.

Additionally, purchasers of extension sockets and other wire accessories are required to locate manufacturers who have SQM certification as quickly as feasible and begin working with them.
