Type Approval for Saudi Arabia

All Regions » Asia » Saudi Arabia
The conformity assessment system in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia accepts European documents for further hassle-free market access. We work directly with the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) in Riyadh, allowing certificates of conformity to be acquired in the shortest possible time. To ensure CITC compliance at the country level, our professional team can assist manufacturers regarding SASO requirements.
The homologation process in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not require local laboratory testing or contact with local representatives. With our support, CITC certificates can be efficiently renewed every 2 years, minimizing the manufacturer's effort to obtain the certificate of compliance in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Thanks to our labeling tool in TAMSys, product labeling is done in less than 5 minutes. If you have any questions regarding conformity requirements in the MENA region, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our competent and trained team will be happy to assist you with product certification and applicable standards.
