SGS was originally founded in 1878 in France as a grain shipment inspection house. In Japan, we started inspection services for agricultural and mineral products in 1922, as the Japan Branch of Far East Superintendence Co. Ltd. (FESCO), subsequently renamed SGS Far East Ltd.

We created SGS Incorporated in Japan in 1987 to provide services centered on ISO Management System assessment and registration, and changed the name to SGS Japan Inc. in 2003.
