Registration of Products for Exports to Saudi Arabia

Enabling swift registration process for the SFDA program

In order to build consumer confidence in products sold in the market and ensure fair trade, the Saudi Food & Drug Authority (SFDA) set a regulation to register food products entering the Saudi market.

As an independent certification body appointed by SFDA, TÜV Rheinland has a global network of experts to facilitate the entire registration process — from establishment registration to product registration — for manufacturers, suppliers, and traders of food products. As a gateway for global trade, we are committed to ensuring that our customers benefit from a swift and secure market access to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
