Forensic Expertise & Experience

SGS M-Scan’s scientists have a wide range of specialist expertise which means they are considered experts within their field. They have provided expert testimony (verbal and written) to many courts throughout the UK. Our forensic scientists are registered with the Council for the Registration of Forensic Practitioners (CRFP) when appropriately experience, and are members of the following professional bodies:

We also have members in the UK-Chapter and the International Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI), and we are “Sweet & Maxwell checked” Expert Witnesses.
