Working with universities and institutes of technology, coupled with active participation in the European framework programmes, helps to maintain our strong position in a world where technology is developing ever more rapidly.
SP is notified for certification, testing and inspection of construction products, and is also accredited for certification of quality and management systems.
We have built up an extensive network of national and international contacts, and are active in many different research contexts at national and international levels. We are also involved in the development of international standards.
