Only a SASO accredited Certification Body (CB) such as XDS Solutions can issue the Product Certificate (PCoC).

"I would like to thank the whole XDS team for guiding us through the SABER process – beginning with numerous e-mail exchanges, telephone conferences regarding SABER technical requirements up to Products Certificates and Shipment Certificates of Conformity. It was hard to start with, but we have introduced all our customers to XDS and encouraged them to do the registration via XDS."
