What we do

SGS Brightsight supports companies in getting their products ready and in compliance with the latest ​security regulations and requirements. With over 35 years of experience in evaluating IT products in different industries, we evaluate these products against requirements set by governmental and private schemes. SGS Brightsight has been a Common Criteria and EMVCo hardware lab since 2002. We are uniquely positioned with our recognitions by multiple governmental Common Criteria schemes: CSA (Singapore), TSE (Turkey), NSCIB (the Netherlands), CCN (Spain), BSI (Germany) and SERTIT (Norway). Our quality management system is ISO 17025 based.

The schemes use our evaluation reports to issue product certificates stating that evaluated products comply with their requirements. A product certificate gives you access to the market you would like to serve with your product. 

SGS Brightsight has a short evaluation and certification timeline to get your product to market in time. With our extensive list of scheme recognitions, we can help you get multiple certifications with minimal additional costs.
