Certificate of Conformity (COC) for Export into Saudi Arabia
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has implemented the Product Conformity Program (PCP) [formerly known as SASO (Saudi Arabian Standards Organization)] for certain regulated products for commercial use. A Certificate of Conformity (CoC) is required from internationally accredited laboratories for certain regulated consumer products exported into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Kingdom).
The PCP is a combined conformity assessment, inspection and certification process on the basis of which certain regulated commodities are allowed entry into the Kingdom and are potentially cleared more quickly through Saudi Customs.
SASO aims to insure that goods and products imported to Saudi markets are complying with all related technical regulations and standards to protect the consumer that these regulated products are free from potential safety hazards and are fit for use in the Kingdom.
