Instructions

  • Private factories and laboratories’ test reports from outside of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia will only be accepted if:
    • They are approved as the standard ISO/IEC 17025 from a full member of ILAC
    • It has been adopted by the national accreditation authority from the country of manufacturing
    • The standards used for the ELECTRICAL MOTORS testing and listed in (SASO IEC 60034-30:2013) are within the scope of the laboratory
      and covered by the above accreditation
  • Private factories’ and laboratories’ inside the kingdom of Saudi Arabia test reports will only be accepted if:
    • They have been adopted as the standard ISO/IEC 17025 by Saudi Accreditation Committee (SAC).
    • The standards used for the ELECTRICAL MOTORS testing and listed in (SASO IEC 60034-30:2013) are within the scope of the laboratory
      and covered by the above accreditation
  • If the lab is approved as the standard ISO/IEC 17025 but the scope is not including the standard (SASO IEC 60034-30:2013)
    The test reports will be accepted from these labs until (31 Dec 2017) after that it will not be accepted and the lab will be removed from the system.

- Until 31 July 2017 AD, SASO will allow the registration of laboratories in the lighting products for laboratories which don't have the accreditation for standard (SASO 2870:2015) or reference standards mentioned in the testing methods, but it requires the presence of the SASO representatives for the test or a person authorized by SASO to attend the test.(The test will be held only once depending on the technology type of the light)

- Before 01 Aug 2017 AD, Laboratories must have an accreditation certificate from an accreditation body with full membership in ILAC and the scope of accreditation should include the standard (SASO 2870:2015) or reference standards mentioned in the testing methods.

Laboratory Registration:

- In order of the laboratory is registering recently or it remains registered in the SLS system (SASO) you should demonstrate that you meet conformity assessment approval regulations. For further information or if you have any questions, please contact by q.cab_reg@saso.gov.sa

- In case the Laboratory isn’t certified by the Registration of Conformity Assessment Bodies Department (RCBD), they should attach the application form to prove they are in the process of being certified. Any laboratory that fails to provide these evidence will be excluded from the SLS System.

  • يتم الاخذ بالجدول (4) في المواصفة المرجعية EN 50440 بدلا من الملحق (A) في المواصفة القياسية السعودية SASO 2884.
  • ينصح بوضع مثبت للثرموستات للحفاظ على درجة الحرارة المعتمدة من المصنع لكيلا تتغير درجة الحرارة المعلنة من الصانع أثناء عملية النقل.

Announcement

Interpretation on (SASO-2884: Methods for measuring the performance of electric storage water-heaters for household purposes):

  • shall be tested the water-heaters on 230V voltage only (single phase )
  • The submitted test repots based on the SASO (IEC 60379) standard, Methods for measuring the performance of electric storage water-heaters for household purposes, will not be accepted after 31/02/2020 AD. The test reports must be following the( EN50440) standard "Efficiency of domestic electical storge water heaters and testing methods" from 01/02/2020 AD.
  • ANNEX (A) in SASO-2884 has been modified to comply with table (4) in (EN50440).
  • It is recommended to install a lock for the thermostat to maintain the factory-set temperature; thermostat temperature may be subjected to change during transportation.
