SASO (Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization)


SASO introduced the SALEEM program and online certification platform SABER to implement the SALEEM (Saudi Product Safety Program) and strengthen the stability of distribution products from January 1, 2019. The SALEEM program is a system that checks the continuous management and stability of consumer goods by applying regulations, technical requirements, and management measures collectively to local products and imports.


SABER is an E-platform for electronically registering or issuing certificates for Product Certificate of Conformity (PCoC) and Shipment Certificate of Conformity (SCoC). Certificates registered on the SABER platform are used by customs to clear cargo, and all products imported to Saudi Arabia must have SABER Certificate of Conduct (CoC).

The purpose of SABER is to comply with Saudi Arabias quality and safety regulations and to protect the health and safety of citizens/consumers from risks of non-standard, counterfeiting and potential, maintain religion/public morality, environmental protection, and prevent abnormal transactions.
