Industrial Valve Certification

Industrial valve certification from SGS – enabling industry to ensure that valves for the petroleum industry meet the requirements of the NBR 15.827 standard.

Suppliers of valves to Brazil’s petroleum industry must ensure that their equipment fulfills the requirements of INMETRO’s BR15.827 standard. We are accredited by the Brazilian Institute of Metrology, Standardization and Industrial Quality (INMETRO) to conduct product certification and issue certificates of conformity for industrial valves supplied to the country’s oil industry.

To obtain a product certification, it is necessary to satisfy all the following requirements:  

  • Phase I:  Design Approval
    SGS verifies if the design of the valve complies with the requirements of the standard. 
  • Phase II: Validation of the Prototype
    SGS provides witness testing of the prototypes to confirm that the performance of a representative sample of the manufactured product is in accordance with the approved project. 
  • Phase III: Approval of the Valve Signature
    SGS provides witnessing of the valve signature test.

After the successful completion of all the stages of the product certification, SGS Industrial Services issues certificates as per NBR 15.827 standard, which provide the suppliers of valves in the Brazilian petroleum industry with proof of their trustworthiness among national and international clients.

With INMETRO accreditation as an OCP in accordance with the Brazilian Accreditation and Certification System (SBAC), we are authorized to conduct all stages in the certification of industrial valves.
