In September 2010, SGS was awarded a contract to provide inspection services for the buildings of the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. During the four-year contract, SGS will offer statutory inspections of hoisting equipment, lifts, escalators, steam generators and electrical installations to assure quality, safety and reliability of European Parliament assets.

In September 2010, SGS Belgium was assigned a four-year contract to provide inspection services for the buildings of the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium.

In order to assure quality, safety and reliability of its assets, the Directorate General for Infrastructure and Logistics, responsible for managing infrastructure and logistics within the European Parliament, sought a reliable third-party company to conduct inspection and testing services.

During the four-year contract, SGS will offer a wide range of statutory inspections of hoisting equipment, lifts, escalators, steam generators and electrical installations. The contract consists of a renewal of the existing agreement SGS Statutory Services Belgium won after a rigorous tendering procedure.

Statutory and Voluntary Inspections, provided by SGS, based on national and international standards, are necessary to assess the integrity of potentially dangerous equipment and installations. The main purpose of these inspections is to ensure the health and safety of employees within the working environment as well as installation integrity, environmental sustainability and regulatory compliance with defined standards and regulations.

Based on its extensive experience and competence, SGS ensures that the installations, materials and equipment meet all quality and performance requirements, whether they are statutory, voluntary or customer based. With accreditations to all major standards and regional regulations, SGS Statutory and Voluntary Inspections aims to ensure the availability, safety and reliability of the customer's assets, resulting in the sustainability of the customer's business operations.

As the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, SGS independently assures the safe and proper working capability and condition of all hoisting equipment, lifts, escalators, steam generators and electrical installations in the buildings of the European Parliament. A team of highly qualified experts will check all materials for failures and discontinuities before suggesting recourse to the appropriate Non-Destructive Testing method, which consists of measurement of the dimensions involved in a defect and an assessment of the associated safety risk.
