Do I Need A Certificate For Exporting To Saudi Arabia?

For all exports to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a Conformity Assessment Programme has been implemented. All products require a Certificate of Conformity also referred to as a SASO CoC to enable them to be cleared through Saudi Customs.

The Conformity Assessment Programme (CAP), is the standard set by the authorities for all products exported to Saudi Arabia. The Programme, which is supported by Intertek, has a number of key objectives:

  • Protection of public health
  • Consumer safety
  • National security

  • Prevention of deceptive practices

The CAP is mandatory for all goods exported to Saudi Arabia and they must be accompanied by a Certificate of Conformity. Only the following products are exempt:
