Approved SGS certification services for the Saudi Quality Mark

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is happy to present its expert product conformity services for businesses looking to secure Saudi Arabia’s mandatory quality mark for regulated goods.

The Saudi Quality Mark (SQM) is implemented by the Saudi Arabia Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO), as per Saudi Cabinet Decree 216 dated 17/06/1431 H. To achieve the license required to display the SQM, a regulated product must undergo rigorous testing and meet all applicable Saudi Arabian regulations and standards. Once received, the license is valid for three years, with an annual surveillance inspection.

As a notified body approved by SASO, SGS Gulf Limited can assess and certify regulated products for the SQM, enabling conformance, increased consumer trust, successful custom port entry and increased sales.

The full list of mandated products is available from SGS and includes gas appliances, cement and ceramic tiles, household and general use plugs, switches and sockets and ready-mix concrete. A list is also available for voluntary SQM certification, which can be obtained for any product.

SGS delivers conformity assessment programs on behalf of government authorities in many countries, including Kuwait, Kenya, Egypt, Algeria, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and Ethiopia. Its customer-focused solutions for testing, inspection and certification help businesses all over the world achieve compliant market entry and product differentiation.

Full details of SGS’s SQM services, including product categories, can be found in the Q1 PCA newsletter.
