Hikvision and SGS announced they have signed a memorandum agreement for joint laboratory collaboration. The memorandum will pave the way for joint efforts in testing, inspection, verification and certification of Hikvision products. It will also see the two companies cooperating strategically in various areas, including: mutual technology exchange, training, information sharing and platform establishment.

Over the past few years, the company has stringently conducted testing processes on every product series and closely collaborates with SGS to optimise procedures. The joint laboratory marks the deepened collaboration between both parties. With the expertise and knowledge from SGS, Hikvision aims to improve its product testing efficiency and capability to a new height, further responding to industry demands and satisfying customer needs.

“SGS actively participates in the formulation of global standards and regulations. It has deepened understanding and insight in these aspects and the global market trend development. Together with Hikvision, we will rely on professional technical team and rich experience to assist Hikvision in product quality improvement, and to improve further their product competitiveness in the security marketplace,” said Laurence Kwan, Director for Electrical and Electronic Business at SGS Asia-Pacific.
