Operating in Colombia since 1976, we help our clients to increase quality, security, efficiency, productivity, and speed to market.

In 1976, we began our operations in Buenaventura by supervising agricultural products. We were first registered under the name of Sociedad General de Supervisiones S.A., which later changed to SGS Colombia in 1983.

In 2000, SGS Colombia took over the management of SGS Venezuela, increasing sales and output dramatically.

Today, as Columbia’s leading provider of verification, inspection, testing and certification services, we assist the country’s most important economic sectors through efficient solutions.
