Do I need a permit for my company’s board in Lagos state?

Do I need a permit for my company’s board in Lagos state?

March 25, 2019

The reason why companies put up their board is to promote, advertise, direct and entice customers to the business.

However, a business in Lagos that intends to put up its company’s board requires a permit from the Lagos State Signage & Advertisement Agency (LASAA) to do so.

The Lagos law which governs signage and advertisement clearly states that every corporate entity’s outdoor structure must be registered.

A company’s board is an outdoor signage and this is called first party sign.

A first party sign informs the public of a business in that particular location.

Accordingly, the company’s board is required to be registered with a registration code which shall be sealed or mounted with the board.
