The Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) on Tuesday met with stakeholders in the North West region of the country to sensitise them on the Ease of Doing Business policy in the country.

The Director General of SON, Mr Osita Aboloma, who was represented by Mr Bede Obayi, a director in the organisation, said the meeting would sensitise business operators on government new policy on ease of doing business.

He said that it would also ensure Nigerians are educated on the need to conform to standards and international best practices in the manufacturing, importation, distribution and sales of goods and services in the country.

The DG said that arrangement has been made by SON to ensure compliant trade in the country, adding that non-complying goods would be segregated for further action in line with the agency’s mandate.

Aboloma explained that the agency’s experience has revealed that most non-compliance involves; no country of origin printed on some imported products for sale, faking of Nigerian-made products already certified by SON and no brands on imported products to enhance traceability.

He added that some practitioners have been assembled in the field to address the unfolding circumstances in the interest of public safety.

“Nigerians should embrace the culture of patriotism and compliance to relevant product standards as the organisation strive to improve the lives of Nigerians through standards products,” he said. (NAN)
