About SGS

SGS in Kenya

Established in Kenya in 1950, we have offices in 19 locations spread out across the country with over six hundred employees. Our main office is located in Upperhill, Nairobi and our registered head office is in SGS House, Mombasa. In addition, our resources and manpower in Kenya support operations in Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, South-Sudan and Somali.

We inspect, test, verify and certify raw materials, goods, products, systems and services often involving complex operations and technical procedures, such as:

  • Introducing the fuel-marking program to Kenya in 1998 and assisting the government to ascertain fuel integrity in the local market. This has become the world’s longest running fuel-marking program
  • Managing the Kenya Pipeline laboratory as an outsourced service for the oil and gas sector
  • Providing axle load weighbridge management for the Kenya National Highways Authority
  • Certifying over thirty government ministries and parastatals against ISO 9001 quality management systems, as well as another three hundred private and public institutions on various international and industry standards
  • Supporting Base Titanium, a global mining company, with a leading-edge laboratory in Kwale for in-production analysis of rare soils and minerals
  • Operating state-of-the art liquid chromatography, tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) equipment to provide full minimum reporting level (MRL) screening
  • Performing environmental due diligence audits for inception, running, expansion and decommissioning projects

Also, since 2005, we have been involved in Pre Export Verification of Conformity (PVOC), the Electronic Cargo Tracking Solutions (ECTS) and other public sector interventions to build integrity.
