Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012:
Energy labeling and minimum energy performance requirements for air-conditioners
2007
• The Saudi standard
SASO 2663/2007
specified 7.5 as the
minimum energy
performance
standard (MEPS) for
the Energy Efficiency
Ratio (EER) for airconditioners without
differentiation by
type or capacity
• SASO proposed to
raise the minimum
energy performance
standard (MEPS) for
the Energy Efficiency
Ratio (EER) to 8.5 in
2009
2009
The minimum
energy
performance
standard
(MEPS) for the
Energy
Efficiency Ratio
(EER) was not
raised to 8.5
EER due to
delays in
enforcement
(until mid
2010)

The Saudi
Energy
Efficiency
Program, in
collaboration
with relevant
stakeholders,
started
modifying the
Saudi standard
SASO 2663 and
proposed
updating the
Minimum
Energy
Performance
Standards
December
2012
SASO Board
approved the
modified
standard SASO
2663 as
proposed by the
Saudi Energy
Efficiency
Program and
updated
standard was
issued

Energy efficiency label licensing procedure for imported and
locally manufactured air-conditioners - SASO
Starting from 7/9/2013, SASO will not issue licenses to air-conditioners that do not
comply with phase 1 of the modified standard; and starting 1/1/2015 for phase 2
Application
Submission
The application submitted to the Saudi Standards, Metrology and
Quality organization by importers and local manufacturers should
include:
•
•
Completed new registration forms
Energy efficiency tests reports from laboratories accredited by an entity
recognized by International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC)
or Saudi Accreditation Committee (SAC)
•
After accepting the application, the Saudi Standards, Metrology and
Quality Organization issues a license to use the new energy efficiency
label and the corresponding number of stars for a period of one year only
The license will be for the tested model only
Licensing
•
Certificate of
conformity
•
Certificates of conformity not compliant with the modified standard will
not be accepted starting from a two-month period before the date of the
implementation in order to ensure that non-compliant products will not be
imported after 7 September 2013

Energy efficiency label licensing procedure for imported and
locally manufactured air-conditioners - SASO
•
•
•
License to
use the
energy
efficiency
label
issued by
SASO
The license issued by SASO to use the energy efficiency label gives its holder the
“right to use the label” and this does not imply the right to import the product
or trade it in the market
The license is complementary to the surveillance work conducted by Saudi
Customs and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry
The license design has been updated
During the transition period from today until 7 September 2013:
•
•
•
•
The license will be issued according to the new design while keeping the validity
period of 2 years
Old licenses will be replaced with new ones and the recipients will be notified that
their license is still valid for the remaining period without any extra charges
Old labels will be replaced with new ones
Recipients of licenses not compliant with the modified standard will be informed
that they will maintain the right to use the label but the modified standard will
prohibit them from selling their products in the market after the specified dates
for each phase
For the period after 7 September 2013
•
The license will be issued according to the new design and the validity will be for
one year only
