SGS is the first company in Brazil to be accredited to carry out RoHS and REACH audits related to the restriction of use of hazardous substances. INMETRO is also the first accreditation body in the world to register a certification body for these standards.

Applied not only to EE products, but also to components, parts and even raw materials which can eventually be used in EE products, the directives are in force in EU to mitigate contamination of natural resources by hazard substances in these products. As the first accredited body to carry out accredited assessments for RoHS and REACH, globally, SGS delivers a real competitive edge to Brazilian exporters, a supportive tool to surpass technical barriers that can eventually be raised against Brazilian products.
