SGS recognises the fundamental importance of data privacy and security and is committed to protecting the privacy of its customers, employees and partners across all its business operations.

SGS has adopted an SGS Data Privacy Policy which sets out the company’s commitments relating to privacy and the protection of personal data. This Policy mandates all affiliates and employees of the Group to uphold the following principles whenever SGS handles personal data:

  • Collecting and using personal data fairly and lawfully. We strive to be transparent and open about the data we collect and only use it for the purposes that are known to the concerned individual
  • Respecting individual rights and choices. We respect individual’s decisions about the way their personal data is collected, treated and used by SGS and its affiliates. This includes the right to access, correct and remove data held by SGS
  • Managing data responsibly. We know that the confidentiality and integrity of personal data is essential to maintain trust and we take adequate measures to protect personal data from the risks of unauthorised use or disclosure

SGS’ Data Privacy Global Leader supported by a network of local Data Privacy Officers and experts throughout our businesses and regions ensures the implementation of and compliance with our privacy commitments across our organisation at a global level.

We are committed to fostering a culture where all SGS employees have a clear understanding of how important data privacy is and how to ensure it is protected. Our data privacy awareness course is available for all existing employees and is part of the induction programme of our new employees. It is supplemented by a dedicated e-learning programme especially created for those employees who are involved with specific aspects of personal data like HR, marketing or IT departments.

In line with our Data Privacy Policy, our SGS online privacy statement describes how we collect, use and protect personal data which is shared with SGS by users of our websites.

If you have any questions about our data privacy commitments or wish to report a privacy incident, please complete our online privacy request form.

This Statement applies to all SGS Affiliates of the SGS Group unless stricter data privacy rules apply locally, in which case local versions will be disclosed on local websites.


Protection of personal data is important to every part of our business. It is as the heart of our promise to our clients, our values, our principles, our conduct and our success and is essential to maintaining trust.
