Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs (Momra) will roll out a five-level contractor classification system in August 2019, which will see companies divided between Level 1 – reserved for megaprojects – to Level 5 – comprising smaller projects. 

Saudi Arabia's state-held news agency, SPA, cited Momra official, Saudi Al-Thikri, saying that the system will cover services related to construction and maintenance. 

Al-Thikri said the updated system would allow companies to e-link their records with relevant authorities and exchange information, allowing for the integration of contractor data in Saudi Arabia. 

According to Al-Thirki, the updated classification system is consistent with Saudi Arabia's National Classification for the Economic Activities (ISIC4), and will raise construction standards in the kingdom.
