It will assist in the local manufacturer’s need to comply with international regulations and requirements, and will cater both domestic and international clients.
Complimenting SGS’s existing testing laboratory in Jakarta, this new laboratory is ideally placed for Semarang, Solo and Yogyakarta, the centre of textile industry, and Surabaya, the centre of footwear and leather industry.
