SGS Germany GmbH – Certification Body

SGS Certification Bodies

certification.jpg SGS has several certification bodies according to the European Directives.


The access to European Market for certain products is regulated by the European Union. The requirements are written down in a series of directives. By placing the CE-marking on a product, the manufacturer declares that his product complies with all applicable European Directives. Without the CE-marking a marketing or operation of the product within the European Market is not allowed. A product may be within the scope of one or more EU Directives.

The manufacturer can usually choose under different conformity assessment procedures. Some of them require a Notified Body to be involved.

Still the involvement of a notified body has many additional advantages. The rules and requirements of the directives are many. Besides the purely technical testing, you, as a manufacturer, are responsible for the proper technical documentation and the correct labeling of your products.

The SGS Certification Bodies are independent and objective. This gives you greater certainty regarding compliance with all essential requirements of the directives!
