"SASO" launches Saber E-Platform to Facilitate Entry procedures for Consumer Products to Saudi Market
Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO) has announced the launch of Saber electronic platform, which aims to register and issue conformity assessment certificates for consumer products before entering the Saudi market. Also, it aims at ensuring that products are free from defects that may affect the health and safety of the consumer. Saber's e-platform reflects SASO's vision to develop and activate the role of beneficiaries in the process of registering products and ensuring their conformity to standards and specifications before entering, and selling them in, the Saudi market.
SASO clarified that Saber e-platform makes it easier for beneficiaries, of local suppliers and manufacturers, to access conformity assessment bodies accredited by SASO around the world for the purpose of inspecting products and issuing conformity assessment certificates electronically and easily. In addition, it aims at facilitating and accelerating procedures for the entrance of products into the Saudi market in coordination with the Saudi Customs.
Saber's e-platform was developed in cooperation with Thiqah Business Services in accordance with the highest standards of efficiency. These standards of efficiency include speed of achievement in registering products, searching for certified conformity bodies, reducing the time taken for beneficiaries in the process of conforming products, and obtaining required certificates of conformity.
Within the framework of joint efforts to facilitate and accelerate procedures for the clearance of imported products to the Saudi market for beneficiaries and their entry through Saudi ports, SASO is working with the Saudi Customs to be linked with Saber e-platform in order to facilitate importation.
It is worth mentioning that SASO plans, over the coming period, to hold workshops inside and outside the Kingdom for beneficiaries in order to raise awareness about Saber e-platform.
Moreover, SASO invites local suppliers and manufacturers to take advantage of Saber e-platform by visiting (saber.sa).
