SON Warns Against Buying Uncertified Products

The Director General, Standards Organisation of Nigeria, Malam Farouk Salim, has cautioned Nigerians against buying uncertified products that would endanger their lives.

Salim gave the warning during SON’s Special Day at the ongoing 34th Enugu International Trade Fair on Thursday in Enugu.

He advised Nigerians to check if any goods had been certified with the Mandatory Conformity Assessment Program logo before they could buy them.

According to him, MANCAP means that the product has been inspected, sampled and subjected to laboratory analysis, adding that the logo is for locally-manufactured products only as Standards Organisation of Nigeria Off-Shore Conformity Assessment Programme is for imported products.

“With it, the quality of any product is assured and guaranteed,” he said.

Salim, represented by the Director, South-East Regional Operations Directorate, SON, Engr. Fred Akingbesote added that the trade fair offered SON the opportunity to reach out to Nigerian and foreign manufacturers on the impact of the organisation in assuring standardization.

He assured Nigerians of the organisation’s readiness to be a major player in assisting entrepreneurs in realization of their dreams.
