SGS is pleased to announce the launch of the ‘SGS Performance Mark’, a third-party, independent product testing, evaluation and verification program developed solely for the Electrical and Electronic (EE) product industry.

To support the EE industry in bringing new products to market and helping existing products stand out from the competition, the SGS Performance Mark validates that products have been tested by an independent third party and meet the required regulations.

David Chu, Vice President – Connectivity said: “Independent marks and certificates are trusted by buyers and offer reassurance and peace of mind to the consumer. As technological innovation gathers pace, consumer expectations of electrical appliances grow. People want safety, reliability and efficiency from their products, but they also want high performance. That’s why we are delighted to launch the SGS Performance Mark. In the end, an electrical product is only trusted because it’s tested.”

Two test programs are offered: SGS Premium Performance and SGS Performance Tested, depending on product type and customer need. Once approved, products can display the performance mark alongside a QR code that can be scanned by consumers to access easy-to-understand testing information. In addition, consumers can visit the SGS Certified Products Directory, to see further product information.
