As customers become increasingly quality-conscious, they also expect suppliers to proactively comply with the highest product and service quality standards. Customers want to be assured that a company continues to meet their needs in the long term. This is a challenge, but also an opportunity companies can profit from.

Standards ensure that products and services possess appropriate characteristics, such as quality, environment friendliness, safety, reliability and efficiency. Products and services that meet standards usually are the ones that satisfy the high quality needs in the industry. The organization responsible for more than 17,500 international standards is the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Globally recognized and respected, ISO is the world’s largest developer and publisher of international standards, with 161 members worldwide.
ISO 9001 is a worldwide established quality framework that sets the standard for management systems in general, and for quality management systems in particular.

ISO 9001:2000 specifies the basic requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS) which a company must fulfill to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that enhance customer satisfaction and meet applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

On July 17, 2009, SGS Nigeria, a member of the SGS Group, achieved certification for ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System demonstrating their commitment to improve product quality, services, and overall customer satisfaction. The ISO 9001:2000 certificate is valid for a period of three years. This certification, granted by the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) was issued after an extensive auditing of the processes and services of SGS Nigeria.

SGS has operated in Nigeria since 1957 and is a trusted local partner in technical inspection, testing, verification and certification. With experience and a network spanning the globe, SGS also offers a wide range of value-added industrial services.
