In February 2017, Volkswagen AG certified SGS’s labs in Europe and China for a wide variety of standards for guaranteeing the quality and durability of materials and components in vehicle interiors and exteriors. This latest certification is indicative of our long-standing relationship with Volkswagen.

Volkswagen has long recognized our expertise in materials testing, which adheres to the standards of major OEMs. Our lab network now holds Volkswagen certification for more than 40 test methods, including a special qualification for Emissionsnorm VW 50180/50179 to test air quality by identifying and quantifying volatile organic compounds and testing for formaldehyde, odors and fogging.

We work closely with Volkswagen on a day to day basis. Our laboratory teams, focused on customer awareness and support, work in partnership with Volkswagen throughout the validation and control process. Our resident engineer has been working on location at Volkswagen’s headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany since 2013.

“To remain the market leader and benchmark, we must deliver reliable and valuable testing services,” says Antoine Bousquet, Global Manager of Transportation Materials Testing Services at SGS. “We have an obligation to provide operational excellence, and are committed to serving and supporting Volkswagen and its chain of suppliers wherever they need us, with the same high level of quality we deliver throughout our unique global network of laboratories.”
