Good news for Samsung West Africa! The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has reopened the Samsung facility in Lagos. It would be recalled that the facility was shut down last week for product registration infractions.
According to the Head, SON Product Registration Unit, Engr. Enebi Onucheyo, the office premises was reopened about 24hrs after it was shut due to the compliance of the company to requirements of the SON Act No. 14 of 2015.
According to him, the Standards Organisation of Nigeria is a business facilitator and the Agency would have no reason to attack the economic strength of any law abiding investor be it local or foreign.
He stressed the need for all products being marketed in Nigeria to be formally registered with SON for traceability and confirmation of quality status.
The SON Head of Products Registration once again admonished all those who are yet to register their products to do so promptly.
According to him, the process is electronic and has been simplified such that it can be concluded within 24 hours of commencement.
