WWBridge offers a variety of services designed to support compliance with the requirements of the technical regulations and standards of Saudi Arabia. Depending on the type of product, WWBridge can help you in the following ways:
The issuance of the Product Certificate of Conformity (PCoC) is required for every regulated product, as per the applicable product standards defined in the relevant technical regulation.. PCoC demonstrates that the imported products have been registered within SABER and are compliant with applicable SASO’s Technical Regulations. The product certification of conformity (PCoC) is issued online in the SABER platform. It is valid for a period of one year.
The Shipment Certificate of Conformity (SCoC) that is requested for all imported products cannot be obtained for regulated ones unless their PCoC has first been completed. If a valid PCoC is confirmed, an SCoC is issued in SABER platform, valid for that specific shipment only.
IECEE Recognition Certificate applies for certain types of products being imported in Saudi Arabia. It guarantees that certified appliances are compliant with the standards of the IEC Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE), while also taking into consideration the Saudi National Differences.
