SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has launched the ‘SGS Performance Mark’, a third-party, independent product testing, evaluation and verification program for the Electrical and Electronic (EE) industry.

SGS developed the program to support the EE industry in bringing new products to market and differentiating existing goods from the competition. Its Performance Mark verifies that products have been tested by an independent third party and meet the necessary requirements and regulations.

David Chu, Vice President – Connectivity, SGS, 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 and electronic product is only trusted because it’s tested.”

SGS offers two test programs: SGS Premium Performance and SGS Performance Tested, according to product type and customer need. Products that qualify to display a performance mark make easy-to-understand testing information available to consumers through a QR code. At the point of purchase, consumers can scan the QR code to see a summary of the protocols tested. In addition, consumers can visit the SGS Certified Products Directory, to access further product information.

In achieving and displaying the Mark, manufacturers, suppliers and retailers can build consumer trust and improve their brand credibility and reputation.
