Hello Covers,

I received a cold call today from a sales man concerning SGS. They audit to ISO and seem to be food based. If you have any experieinces with them please let me know what you think thanks.

They have more offices within USA than any other NB, to my knowledge. They also have a broad range of notifications...broader than any other NB with which I've interacted.

Of course, that's not necessarily relevant to you...you likely only need one point of contact, and their activities other than in your particular field likely don't matter to you.

We used to use SGS in a previous employer. The auditors were knowledgeable, pragmatic and, when it came to recertification, didn't use it as an opportunity to throw everything at us and drag it out across 2 follow-ups like a certain well-known British "institution" seemed to with an AS9100 transition to Rev C. I've got a pretty poor view of some other CBs but, from my experience, SGs were about the bes tthat we used.
