- Renew & reinforce confidence for consumers & trade.

- Identify and mitigate risks

The alignment to ISO/IEC 17025 is ensured through accreditations for various testing scopes by Emirates International Accreditation Center (EIAC), GCC Accreditation Center (GAC) & Emirates National Accreditation System (ENAS). SGS Testing Laboratories offer businesses the opportunity to test products as per regional and international standards to ensure necessary product safety and compliance.

With a presence of over 35 years in the Middle East and regionally headquartered in Dubai, SGS Gulf is raising the bar further to transform the testing facility into a Center of Excellence — MultiLab — in a new facility spanning over 14000 sq ft with extensive testing capabilities including paints, textiles, tobacco, electrical and electronics equipment.

This progress will largely contribute to nurturing a sustained and verified product quality culture and developing a knowledge society within UAE. This will enable faster trade facilitation by substantially reducing testing turnaround times, ensuring consumer safety and protecting the environment.
