On 20th November 2020, the Saudi Arabian Standards, Metrology and Quality Organisation (SASO) notified the WTO of a Draft Technical Regulation for Saudi Arabia RoHS requirements, with the aim to restrict the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The regulation also defines the  conformity assessment procedure for RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) in Saudi Arabia.

The draft Saudi RoHS regulation, available here, is similar to the EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EC in terms of requirements and scope.

This draft Technical Regulation applies to electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in the following categories:

  • Large household appliances
  • Small household appliances
  • Information and communication technology equipment
  • Lighting equipment
  • Electrical and electronic tools
  • Leisure, recreation and sports equipment
  • Monitoring and control tools

There are a number of exceptions including medical devices, military equipment, large-scale stationary industrial tools, large scale fixed installations and aerospace equipment.

The regulation also provides a full breakdown of supplier obligations, including meeting technical and administrative requirements, as well as completing the conformity assessment procedure outlined in the regulation.

Mandatory SABER Registration for Telecommunication Equipment
The deadline has now passed for the issuance of Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organisation (SASO) Certificates of Conformity for equipment falling under "Technical Regulations for the Telecommunication devices" in Saudi Arabia.

Certified Bodies (CBs) have stopped registering Certificates of Conformity as of 15th January 2020. As of this date, it is now mandatory for most equipment falling under "Technical Regulations for the Telecommunication devices" to instead be registered using the SABER platform and obtain a Product Certificate and a Shipment Certificate. The latter is a requirement for the consignment, meaning that registration on the SABER Portal is required every time a consignment is shipped into Saudi Arabia.

Manufacturers can check if their products would require SASO certification by referring to the technical regulations here. HS code and product category will determine whether SASO certification is required.
