Quality is a continuous improvement activity at SGS-IPS Testing with an aim to continually expand services and customer satisfaction. Interdepartmental goals are aligned throughout SGS-IPS to create a culture of quality integrated into all aspects of our testing services to provide data with integrity and results with validity. Quality Systems are our competitive differentiator.
The current global marketplace has heightened awareness regarding standards of quality. ISO 17025 testing laboratory accreditation confirms that SGS-IPS carries out consistent and competent testing within the scope of accreditation. Labs that meet this standard also operate a quality management system in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001. SGS-IPS originally achieved ISO 17025 accreditation for testing in May 2012 through ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and has since maintained accreditation. A copy of our current accreditation certificate and accreditation scope may be viewed by clicking the link above or by accessing the ANAB website and searching for SGS North America or SGS IPS Testing. In 2019, SGS-IPS added ISO 9001 certification to further confirm the implementation of an effective quality management system. The certificate may be viewed by clicking this ISO 9001 Certificate link or by accessing the ABS website and searching for SGS North America.
Specifically, SGS-IPS is accredited to the following tests for paper, tissue and nonwoven consumer products:
SGS-IPS maintains a Quality Management System that conforms with the stringent regulatory requirements of the U.S. FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for Medical Devices as outlined in the non-manufacturing provisions of Title 21 CFR Part 820. Change control, corrective action, auditing and document control/traceability are all part of ensuring regulatory compliance.
Quality Systems at SGS-IPS are not strictly for compliance. They create customer value through data accuracy and testing efficiency.
