Consumer goods regulations are stringent, especially in the European Union. Consumers, retailers and NGOs place increasingly high demands on the quality of both raw materials and products. Manufacturers face many challenges during production and it is their responsibility to ensure products do not cause harm to human health when used by consumers under normal and foreseeable conditions.
SGS provides manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of consumer goods with total solutions, advice and support in all aspects of product quality assurance.
SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. Our international network of laboratories can conduct a series of chemical, mechanical or physical property tests to ensure the safety of your products and get them to market as quickly and safely as possible.
