If your company is currently or expecting to export goods into Saudi Arabia, then you won’t want to miss our upcoming webinar to understand how new changes in the Saudi standards compliance processes will impact your products getting through customs.
The Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO), is the technical governmental body in Saudi Arabia that governs compliance and accreditation of Saudi Standards for all goods sold to and in the Kingdom. SASO has implemented new procedures and fees in the past year through their new SALEEM and SABER platforms that significantly change the exporting process to Saudi Arabia. The SABER platform was inaugurated to manage the applications for Certificate of Conformity, while the technical regulations (termed SALEEM) are currently being phased in.
- Provide updates on the changes being made to the process of certifying goods for export and what to expect in Customs for a large number of products;
- Explain the implementation of the SALEEM Technical Regulations;
- Discuss the SABER platform’s Certificates of Conformity (COC) issuance process, and electronic issuance of the Shipment Certificate.
