Verify SGS branded documents to confirm their authenticity and validity.

We provide customers with a variety of certificates and reports to confirm the results of inspections or tests we have completed. We also provide a free document verification service, for SGS branded documents, which will provide clear confirmation as to whether a document is genuine or not, before you rely on it for any purpose.

Digital Signatures

To protect and secure SGS documents in pdf format, we have implemented a digital signature solution. In Acrobat Reader, a pdf file that has been digitally signed by SGS displays a blue banner containing the text ‘Certified by SGS Document Signing, SGS Group Management SA, certificate issued by GlobalSign Primary SHA265 CA for Adobe.’ above the document. If you are in any doubt, upload the document below for verification.

Combating the Counterfeiters

Every year, we check thousands of documents which are often being used to legitimately support business transactions. Although most are genuine, a small number are not.

Whenever counterfeit documents are found, we take action to investigate the circumstances more fully and identify the individuals or organizations behind them. We also actively monitor third-party websites and remove adverts that make misleading or false references to SGS.

To use our document verification service, please complete the form and attach the document(s) for verification.

Single documents as pdf files, multiple documents in a single zip file, maximum file size 10MB. For files exceeding 10MB, complete and submit the form above without an attachment, and we will contact you.
