SECO Belgium is the first independent technical expert for the construction industry, set up to enhance global quality and safety standards, and prevent risks for the construction partners. 

Our origins are in Belgium in 1934, where SECO was founded in a cooperative setup on the initiative of Professor Magnel and Professor François, with the objective to reduce the consequences of non-quality. Until today, our main concern is to bring quality and safety standards within innovative and audacious infrastructures and buildings. SECO Belgium is also investing pioneering efforts in the development of European norms and use of materials. 

The head office is located in Brussels and two satellite offices have been started in Ghent and Namur.
