About Us


SGS is a world-renowned certification body, principally concerned with electrical and mechanical equipment intended for installation and use in potentially explosive atmospheres. We are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), are a Notified Body for the European ATEX Directive and have global acceptance within the IECEx Scheme.

Research work into explosions in hazardous atmospheres has been carried out at Buxton from the 1920s. SGS is currently one of the largest organisations in the world with a laboratory dedicated to this type of work and a world leader in the field.

With over 300 years collective experience, the staff at SGS UK has extensive knowledge of the application of industry standards in many areas. Indeed, staff members are currently playing a major role in the shaping of the standards used in these areas, both at European and International levels.
