About The
Saudi Accreditation Center:

Following the decision (600) of the Council of Ministers, dated June 25th, 2019, the National Accreditation Committee (2004) was turned into an independent center both financially and administratively under the name "Saudi Accreditation Center", which is linked directly to the Minister of Commerce.    The Center is the official national entity authorized to provide accreditation services for conformity assessment bodies in Saudi Arabia as well as enhancing their efficiency.
