Intercard first to receive SASO certification
Provider of cashless technology Intercard, which has been working in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since 1999 and has over 300 locations in KSA, has received SASO (Saudi Arabia Standards, Metrology and Quality Organisation) certification.
SASO, also referred to as the CoC (Certificate of Conformity), is a certificate required for each consignment, or a specific batch, of certain imported goods to clear customs. The SASO certifies that the product has been successfully tested and inspected to meet the country’s quality and safety standards. The SASO certificate acts as a passport for the goods to clear customs.
In August 2020 Intercard completed the annual audit SASO Assessment which was conducted by SGS Certification Provider. SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. The scope of the audit was to review magnetic card readers for games, validate available documented processes and identify improvement opportunities.
“The audit assessment was successful and Intercard had zero non-conformities,” stated Vadim Pambuk Intercard’s global project manager of application development, who implemented the audit with SGS.
Vadim added: “To be a true global player you must live up to international standards and Intercard takes this seriously. Intercard will continue to work hard toward improvement initiatives to meet customer’s expectations and deliver the best services and products to KSA and all of its customers around the world.”
No other payment solution provider has achieved the SASO certification, making Intercard the first and only.
