Audits and Certification
In any industry or sector, your products and services must conform to the standards and regulations required by your target market. Without the correct compliance, your market access is diminished, supply chains break down and your bottom line is affected.
Identifying the correct market regulations for your products or services can be a complex challenge. Understanding national and international regulations, sector or industry specific standards and bespoke customer requirements needs thorough investigation and detailed industry knowledge.

The new EU Toy Directive requires toy manufacturers to demonstrate they have taken all necessary actions to ensure the conformity of the toys throughout the supply chain. SGS offers audit programs to comply with this new requirement and can provide a report that includes a check list of assessed points such as Monitoring and Measurement, Identification and Traceability, etc and the corrective actions to be taken by the audited factory. SGS can also help generate proof that raw materials used, such as wood comes from sustainable and well-managed sources.
