SABER (Saudi Product Safety Program) certification is mandatory for all electrical and electronic products that are intended for sale or use in Saudi Arabia. The SABER certification process ensures that the products meet the technical standards and safety requirements set by the Saudi Arabian Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO). In this article, we will discuss how to obtain SABER certification for electrical and electronic products.
Identify the product category: The first step in obtaining SABER certification is to identify the product category. The product category is determined by the type of product and its intended use.
Choose an accredited laboratory: Once the product category is identified, the next step is to choose an accredited laboratory. The laboratory must be accredited by SASO to perform the required tests on the product. The laboratory will perform the tests and provide a test report.
Prepare the required documents: The required documents for SABER certification include the test report from the accredited laboratory, a product description, and the manufacturer’s declaration of conformity. The manufacturer’s declaration of conformity is a document that certifies that the product meets the relevant technical standards and safety requirements.
Apply for SABER certification: The next step is to apply for SABER certification. The application can be submitted online through the SABER platform. The application should include the required documents and any other relevant information.
Pay the fees: The fees for SABER certification vary depending on the product category and the type of test required. The fees can be paid online through the SABER platform.
Wait for the certification: After the application and fees are submitted, the certification process can take up to 10 days. Once the certification is approved, the product can be imported and sold in Saudi Arabia.
In conclusion, SABER certification is mandatory for all electrical and electronic products that are intended for sale or use in Saudi Arabia. To obtain SABER certification, you must identify the product category, choose an accredited laboratory, prepare the required documents, apply for SABER certification, pay the fees, and wait for the certification. By following these steps, you can ensure that your products meet the technical standards and safety requirements set by SASO and can be sold in Saudi Arabia.
