Product Risk Assessments

Product risk assessment services from SGS – a comprehensive range of services to help you establish quality and safety management, identify product risks, and ensure safety and quality throughout production.

Product risk assessments can help you improve your products and meet any applicable legal requirements. Without them, a product’s place in the market may be precarious and you may run the risk of product returns and recalls, damage to brand integrity or, worse, litigation if customers are put in danger.

Our comprehensive range of product risk assessment services identify potential hazards and provide solutions as early as possible in the product life cycle – ideally at concept design stage. As a result, you can take appropriate action to prevent products becoming stalled in production or recalled once they are released onto the market.
