Register your business with standard organization of nigeria

Are you a manufacturer in Nigeria? You are into the production of products or you import goods into the country and you want to promote and sell these goods? You will need to register them with the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON). In today’s article, I will guide you on how to do this easily and every other thing you need to know about the SON.

What is the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON)?

The Standard Organization of Nigeria is a statutory body that has the power and responsibility for standardizing and regulating the quality of all products in the country. The SON was established by Act No. 56 of 1971. SON is a full member of the International Organization for Standardization (IOS).

Why do You Need to Register Your Product With SON?

There is no new product that can be considered well enough for consumption by the public without being certified safe by the regulatory body called SON. This means that you cannot bypass SON except if you want to sell substandard products and if you do this, it will not be long before the law catches up with you. 

Many times, many entrepreneurs have genuine products but because they have not been certified by SON, they are products are considered illegal. When your products are duly registered it shows transparency and when there’s transparency, your products can be trusted.

Benefits of Registering Your Products with SON

There are many benefits you stand to gain when you register your products or business with the Standard Organization of Nigeria.

2. This shows that your products can be traced both by regulatory agencies and consumers.

3. It is hard for your products to be counterfeited when your product is registered under SON and it has the SON logo.

4. When your product is registered under SON and it is counterfeited you can sue the company or individuals doing it.

5. It keeps you the producer in check to continue to produce products that meet up with the standards.

Penalty for not Registering Your Products with SON

The penalties can be very tough especially if you are a novice in the system.

1. You can be sued for the production of substandard products.

2. You might be asked to pay a fine determined by the organization.

3. Your goods can be seized by the inspectorate and compliance directorate for being harmful or counterfeits. This can be a huge loss especially if the products are in large quantities.
