Sika South Africa’s ongoing high
level of standards pertaining to product quality has for many years included
the endorsement of the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS). With
unwavering dedication to maintaining these high standards, Sika South Africa
took the decision to cancel
their contract with SABS after the latter was recently put under the spotlight due to possible
irregularities in its administration and complaints about service delivery.

To uphold the integrity and uncompromising
standards that Sika itself and its customers are well acquainted with, Sika
South Africa has now joined the Sika AG multi-site certification which is
certified by SGS – Société Générale de
Surveillance, a leading global inspection, verification, testing and
certificationbody with over 2 400 offices and laboratories
around the world.

With its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, SGS’s core services include inspection
and verification of the quantity, weight and quality of traded goods, as well
as performance testing according to a prescribed level of minimum standards
required to meet customers’ needs. As a result of this new accreditation
partnership, Sika customers all over the world are assured of the company’s
commitment to providing the same high quality standards that they have come to
know and expect.

Sika South Africa aims to
continuously achieve the highest standards in all three ISO certifications,
Quality Management System (ISO9001), Environmental Management Systems
(ISO14001) and Occupational Health and Safety Certification (OHSAS 18001).
