Definitions
Terms shown in bold font within this document are defined below:
Acceptable: Approval is not required to place a purchase order for the product. After
the order has been placed, the supplier of this product must ensure that he complies
with all aspects of the purchasing contract (e.g., must meet the Saudi Aramco Materials
System Specification).
Approval: Written authorization by the Manager, Process & Control Systems
Department, Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.
Custody Transfer Measurement: A specialized form of measurement that provides
quantity and quality information used for the physical and fiscal documentation of a
change in ownership and/or responsibility of commodities. The following
measurements are custody transfer measurements:

Measurement of hydrocarbon liquid or gas movements (deliveries or receipts)


between Saudi Aramco and its customers, suppliers, or transport contractors.

Measurement of hydrocarbon liquid or gas transfers within, or between, Saudi

equipment design, allowing a supplier to either (1) assemble the equipment using all
the pieces provided by the design owner or (2) assemble the equipment using a
combination of pieces provided by the design owner and pieces manufactured by the
licensee to the design owner's detailed drawings/specifications. The contract between
the licensor and licensee would (1) require the licensee to follow the licensor
manufacturing procedures and be routinely audited by the licensor for compliance and
(2) require the equipment to be marketed and labeled using the licensor's brand name.
Made: Created from raw materials and/or assembled by the manufacturer.
Manufacturer: Can be either (1) the owner of the brand name of the equipment or (2)
a licensee that has a license agreement.
Royalty Measurement: A specialized form of measurement that is used as the basis
for paying royalty to the Saudi Arabian Government.
SAMSS: "Saudi Aramco Materials System Specification."
Supplier: The person/company, etc., who is responsible to provide the equipment to
Saudi Aramco.

General
5.1

Procurement of a product made by a manufacturer not listed in the SAP


system is not allowed without approval. Requests for approval of an alternate
manufacturer must be supported by documentation identifying how the
alternate manufacturer would better serve Saudi Aramco over the

Commentary Note:
If the request to procure from an alternate manufacturer is not approved, the
approval authority is under no obligation to present the reasons for the refusal.

5.2

The manufacturer listings within the SAP system shall be interpreted in the
following manner:
