The merger of IKOB-BKB and SKG resulted in a new, powerful certification organization: SKG-IKOB Certification BV.



SKG was established as a certification and testing institute more than 35 years ago, on the initiative of the industry itself. Since then, SKG has developed into the partner for safeguarding the long-term performance and safety of industrial products for the building envelope.

IKOB-BKB evolved from a merger of the building materials industry (IKOB) and the former Building Centre (BKB). IKOB-BKB boasts 60 years of experience as an inspection and certification organization, specializing in construction materials and building processes, and with SKW Certification for housing (including public housing). IKOB-BKB provides a complete package of services relating to quality assurance for the entire building sector.
