It is a governmental certificate issued by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) after reviewing your product or company files to prove (certify) that a product or a company has complied with the required safety, efficacy, and quality standards set by the SFDA. I.e. it is the SFDA approval.

Companies must have the SFDA approval in the form of a certificate for their entity and their products.

Products regulated by SFDA are human food, medicine (drugs / Pharmaceuticals), and medical devices. In addition to cosmetics, animal health (veterinary), feed/forage, and pesticides.
