FG set to publish list of importers, dealers and manufacturers of counterfeit Products In Nigeria
The Federal Government has said a detailed list of importers, dealers and manufacturers of counterfeit wares were being compiled and would soon be published to guide Nigerians in their purchases.
This move is a part of the government’s intensified fight against fake and substandard products.
The Director General/Chief Executive of the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) Joseph Odumodu, disclosed this in Lagos recently while on a working visit to the National Secretariat of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA).
While admitting that SON’s greatest challenges are the proliferation of fake electronics and electrical products however, Odumodu revealed that better strategies are being evolved to checkmate the influx of the fake products.
He further noted that through collaboration with other stakeholders on the issuance of SONCAP and other certifications, regulation of products will be enhanced as there is an existing collaboration between the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and the agency.
