We use drones to help you with inspections in dangerous or poorly accessible places.

Drones, or remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) are increasingly being used for inspections. Faster and safer than manual inspections, RPAS-based inspections can be performed in dangerous or inaccessible places, such as places at height, enclosed spaces, storage tanks and in complete darkness. By using RPAS for inspections, we minimize downtime and process disruptions, so you can get on with your business.

How we can help

We use state-of-the-art recording and inspection technologies, including high-res and infrared cameras, to show you the slightest details and provide you with the most accurate measurements.

As the world’s leading, inspection, verification, testing and certification company, we will help you find the answers you seek and provide you with the accreditation and certification you need.

Safety first

When using drones, safety is paramount, particularly in places such as factory premises, construction sites and port terminals. Therefore, drone flying is subject to strict rules. To ensure that safety requirements and standards are always satisfied, we have partnered with BAFA, Belgium’s leading approved pilot training organization. BAFA has dozens of years’ worth of experience as a training center for professional pilots and other parties as well as expertise in aviation regulations and procedures.

SGS and BAFA will jointly take care of risk analysis and permit applications prior to inspection as well as your post-inspection report.
