Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) State Offices and Contact Details

by | October 2, 2020 0

Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), formally known as the Nigeria Standards Organisation, is the apex standardization body formed in 1971 under Decree No. 56 to standardize methods and products in Nigeria’s industries. In 1984, the name of the organization was changed from Nigeria Standards Organisation to Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) following the amendment of the Decree. This was to eliminate conflicting identity with the then Nigerian Security Organisation (NSO).

A further amendment of the Decree occurred in 1991 granting SON the power to seize and confiscate substandard products. The enactment, as amended, forms the legal framework put in place by the federal government to enhance the actualization of consumer protection in Nigeria.

Functions of Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON)

Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) is assigned specific functions under the section 4 of the Act which includes, inter alia, the duty;

  • to compile an inventory of products requiring standardization, and Nigerian standards specification;
