This Saudi Standard “Plugs and socket-outlets for household and similar purpose - safety requirements and test methods - 250 V/ 13 A” has prepared on the basis of updating the previous SASO standard No. 2203:2003 "Plug and Socket-Outlets for Household and Similar General Use – 220V", and the two supplementary standards endorsed by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization; GSO BS 1363-1 : 2009 incorporating amendments numbers 1,2 and 3, “13 A plugs, socket- outlets, adaptors and connection units- Part 1: Specification for rewirable and non- rewirable 13 A fused plugs.” and GSO BS 1363-2 : 2009 incorporating amendments numbers 1,2 and 3, “13 A plugs, socket-outlets, adaptors and connection units- Part 2: Specification for 13 A switched and unswitched socket- outlets.” . This Standard was prepared taking into consideration the latest decree No.324 dated 20/09/1431H issued by the ministries cabinet to change the system voltage from 220/127 V in the kingdom to 400/230 V. Additional modifications have made to this standard to suit the conditions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
