Are your products as good as you promise? SGS’s product performance testing supports product claims, reduces recall risks and cuts your costs.

Performance testing enables the functionality, usability, durability and performance of products to be measured, compared and evaluated. These figures can be used to inform the development and fine tuning of existing and new products.

We conduct performance tests against the standards applicable to your market. In addition, we can tailor performance testing services to meet manufacturer or retailer specific requirements. The safety of the consumer, your end customer, is paramount.

With a long history of consumer testing we understand the potential weak points of products and can help you to make improvements. Our advice will help to prepare your goods for the rigorous marketplace testing and competitor comparisons often carried out by consumer groups.

Our independent, third party, verification of your commitment to quality will build your brand image and boost confidence amongst clients and consumers.
