  • Can I directly supply to Buyers, or do I need to partner with a local agent?

    One of the best features to acquiring the JSRS Certification is Visibility; your company gains direct visibility to over 300+ Operators, Buyers and Contractors who use the JSRS to fulfil their procurement requirements. The Buyers Community use the JSRS to source verified suppliers who match their product/service requirement. In the event a JSRS Buyer or Contractor wishes to deal with you directly, they will connect with you.

    However, having a local agent could prove beneficial, as some projects may require you to have a local agent and such information will be available only as part of the tendering process. For example, your local agent (if it is an Omani SME) will receive Obligation based contract opportunities from O&G Industry of Oman. Both you and your agent, can together serve this opportunity successfully.

  • Our Oman-based Partner is JSRS Certified, do we also need to be Certified with JSRS for our Products and Services to be accepted by the Buyers Community?

    We recommend you be JSRS Certified as that will benefit your company with direct visibility to the Operators, Buyers and Contractors in Oman. Additionally, procurement and tenders will be sent directly to your registered email Id depending on their requirements.

    If a Supplier wants to showcase their product as manufacturer in JSRS then the Manufacturing company should be JSRS Certified. However, your representative companies can also process their JSRS certification with the product that they are representing in Oman as Agent or Distributer

    Kindly refer to our JSRS Brochure to learn about the benefits of being JSRS Certified.
