Guarantees of expertise within the company and an economic advantage thanks to savings on the costs of external parties. SQS is involved in Swiss industry and provides input in the fields of standardisation and the development thereof.

3 years - there is an annual audit to ensure that standards are being maintained and a recertification audit after 3 years.
The SQS certificate of conformity with SR 819.13 has national recognition.
