The Standards Authority provides free of charge a number of standard specifications

As of November 1, 2018, the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization began its responsibilities for calibrating fuel pumps, after agreeing to finally transfer those responsibilities from the Ministry of Commerce and Investment to the Authority.

The authority explained that this procedure comes after it had recently launched the National Standardization and Calibration Program (Taqyees), and updated and published the executive regulations for the measurement and calibration system, which include requirements for the manufacture, import and use of measuring devices for commercial operations, such as: fuel pumps, scales, home meters and others.

The authority revealed that the application of the updated regulations will be in three phases. The first phase will start in Riyadh on 1/1/2018 AD, while the second phase includes both the cities of Jeddah and Dammam and will start on 01/01/2019. As for the application for the rest of the Kingdom’s regions, it starts on 01/ 04 / 2019 AD.

The Standards Authority also clarified that the "Taqyees" program is one of its initiatives within the National Transformation Program 2020, and the Authority called on all those concerned with measuring devices, including manufacturers, importers, operators and maintenance centers, to apply the requirements of the measurement and calibration regulations and their technical annexes.

It is noteworthy that the Ministry of Commerce and Investment had launched a system for checking and calibrating electronic fuel pumps in the middle of the year 1439 AH with the aim of raising the supervisory role over fuel stations, raising the level of transparency in the service provided to the final consumer and eliminating fraud cases.
