SGS in Taiwan
SGS in Taiwan was officially affiliated to the SGS Group in 1952 as SGS Far East Ltd., Taiwan Branch. In 1991, SGS Taiwan Ltd was established. Today we have nearly 2,500 employees and a network of offices and laboratories, the biggest and most diverse independent third-party testing facilities in Taiwan.
We work with clients to expand exports and enhance the quality of products and services, actively supporting Taiwan’s economic development. Our Operation Center in the New Taipei Industrial Park, supported by a network of offices and laboratories, delivers testing, inspection, certification and verification services for the broadest range of goods and products including, but not exclusively:
- Agriculture and food
- Consumer goods and retail
- Industrial manufacturing
- Life sciences
- Mining and logistics
- Oil and gas
- Public sector
- Risk management
- Health and safety
With more than 17 laboratories across Taiwan, plus operations in every major Taiwanese harbor, we conduct rigorous, consistent and internationally recognized tests for attributes including safety, reliability, destruction and EMC among many others.
Established to inspect commodities such as wheat, soy beans, cotton and fertilizer, we have grown with, and in support of, Taiwan’s economy into a much bigger company with a vastly broader range of services. Expansion in the export market for textiles and consumers products was the initial catalyst for growth in the 1960s. Firmly established in consumer testing, we then expanded into the certification and inspection of electrical and electronic products. To assist Taiwan’s development as an exporter we developed a range of pre-shipment inspection services, facilitating international trade and ensuring access to foreign markets.
By the 1980s, growing demand for raw materials prompted rapid expansion in mineral and chemical inspection services. A corresponding growth in the petrochemical industry saw the establishment of our Oil, Gas and Chemical division in 1986.
Certification and training services boomed in the 1990s and our laboratory facilities have expanded to meet market needs as we continue to pursue innovative ways to meet your organization’s requirements and support Taiwan’s economic development.
