The Saudi Ports Authority (MAWANI) announced the start of implementing the general regulations for licenses and permits in Saudi ports, which govern the activities included within its competencies, starting from August 5, 2022, according to a statement.

The application of the regulation for licenses and permits comes within the framework of the regulations governing the work of the authority, taking into account what is required by the regulations and the powers of other relevant authorities.

The regulations aim to set general rules that govern the requirements and procedures for obtaining licenses and permits from the authority to conduct activities, services and operational processes, as well as monitoring and inspecting the practice of these activities with quality and efficiency that ensure customer satisfaction and provides a reference that ensures transparency and clarity in licensing.

The regulations stipulate that the authority will issue, renew, cancel or suspend licenses, and set the conditions and controls for any other related works to be practiced by the licensees in accordance with the regulations of each license.

MAWANI gave the green light, in its approved regulations, for the mechanisms for obtaining licenses, through the electronic platform, after attaching all the statutory documents.
