22 businesses in Anambra receive MANCAP certificates from SON.
22 businesses in Anambra have received 92 Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP) certificates for their 92 products from the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON).

On behalf of Dr. Ifeanyi Okeke, the Director General (DG) of SON, the certificates were given on Wednesday in Awka, the capital of Anambra, by Mr. Mathias Bassey, the Managing Director, SON's Anambra Regional Operations Office.

Of the 92 certificates, 41 were for new registrations for businesses whose products passed the certification procedures, and 51 were for revalidation.

The businesses are: P&G Cosmetics; Ucee Kings Aluminum; Dexin Multilinks; Vinval Industries; Eastchase Aluminum; Olympic Technical; Chrisdon Aluminum; Jezco Oil; Portico Best; Manif Foot/Beverages; Dillys Investment; Donna Summer; and Gauze Pharm Ltd.

The others were Golden Oil, Comag Industries, Frandoz Industries, Gonzilas Aluminum, Godwin Okafor & Sons, SNF Foods, Debaron Global, and Capitol Super Aluminum.

The DG stated in his statement that SON's efforts to guarantee that products created in Nigeria are globally accepted and competitively able to outperform their international rivals include the MANCAP program.

The only option for manufacturers to learn about the Nigerian Industrial Standards (NIS) criteria and receive assistance in meeting those standards was by enrolling in the MANCAP program, he urged them.

According to him, SON would conduct recurrent laboratory testing, sampling, and factory inspections to make sure the certified items kept up their compliance with the pertinent standards that granted them certifications.

"To prevent Nigeria from becoming a dump for inferior goods, all producers and other service providers in the nation should make sure that goods produced there fulfill the necessary standards.

The items must be revalidated every three years, and it is crucial that you understand that if the products don't fulfill the requirements or if the companies misuse the number and logo, the certificates that were provided today will be revoked or suspended, the speaker stated.

Okeke urged all manufacturing firms in the nation, particularly Small- and Medium-Scale Enterprises (SMEs), to scrupulously adhere to the principles of standards and quality, saying that SON could not afford to compromise its mandate.

Mr. Emmanuel Husseni, Coordinator, Anambra Office 1, had earlier commended the certified companies for their efforts in fulfilling the necessary requirements in his welcoming speech.

Husseni promised that SON would keep helping local businesses in the Awka Area office to become more competitive.
