News for Saudi Arabia
Requirement to support 4G technology
Please be informed that CITC has announced an additional requirement as below with respect to 4G technology support in tracking devices and machine-to-machine communication (M2M)
Further to what was clarified previously, where we have emphasized that all importers of CITC devices in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia must comply with the technical specification (RI056) issued by the Committee and which included that all terminal devices must - at minimum - support 4G and cellular transmission service in addition to applying the electronic label.
Based on that, the Committee would like to emphasize that these kind of devices must include the above-stated requirements. Otherwise such terminal devices will not be released or approved.
This requirement to support 4G technology in tracking devices and machine-to-machine communication (M2M) will come into force on 1/1/2020.

New e-platform Saber
The Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO) has offically launched a new online platform called Saber to issue conformity assessment certificates and register products before entering the Saudi market.
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly. Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.
The Type F electrical plug (also known as a Schuko plug) has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart. It is similar to the Type E plug but has two earth clips on the side rather than a female earth contact. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with sockets E and F and has grounding clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets) and a female contact (to accept the grounding pin of the type E socket). Type F plugs are rated 16 amps.
The Type G electrical plug has three rectangular blades in a triangular pattern and has an incorporated fuse (usually a 3 amps fuse for smaller appliances such as a computer and a 13 amps one for heavy duty appliances such as heaters). British sockets have shutters on the live and neutral contacts so that foreign objects can’t be introduced into them.
