Advantages of SON registration in Nigeria

October 25, 2019

The Standard Organization (SON) of Nigeria is the body vested with the responsibility to make sure that products locally manufactured in Nigeria have the required level of satisfaction desired by the consumers. As such, knowing that this is an organization that ascertains the standards of locally manufactured goods, it is important to register with them as the far reaching advantages include:

  1. The fact that when you register with the standard organization of Nigeria is a pointer to the fact that your products are up to standard.
  2. Registering with the Standard Organization of Nigeria prevents the seizure of your goods by the inspectorate and compliance director.
  3. It aids the detection of counterfeit products.
  4. It aids Product traceability in the Nigerian market.
  5. It creates barriers to the circulation of substandard products.
  6. Once your products have been registered, the official product SON registration Logo and number are displayed on the registered products.
