Supplier Verification Program

SGS’s supplier verification program – instills confidence between clients and suppliers in a digital age.

Globalization and the ease of international trade mean that business is increasingly being conducted electronically. Honesty and credibility play an important role in trading platforms, but in a digital age buyers and sellers may never meet, making these value judgments more difficult. Today, a verified supplier is highly valued by buyers.

We conduct on-site verification on your behalf, including:

  • Legality and authenticity
  • Business capacity
  • Production capacity
  • Quality control and management
  • Service management
  • Certification(s)

Suppliers who are successful at the audit stage will be ranked as ‘Gold’ or ‘Platinum’ and will be entitled to use the SGS Verified Supplier mark.
