Standards Organisation of Nigeria SON, has presented Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme MANCAP certificates to twenty-one set of qualified manufacturers in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
Presenting the certificates at the weekend in Abuja, the FCT Coordinator, GamboDimka, identified the companies as Locameris paint, Zenoh table water, Silkcoat paint, Flourish Grubs, DhaeulHijrah fertilizer company among others as worthy deserving 21 companies who have who have remain steadfast especially in spite of the prevailing challenges of COVID-19 pandamic.
Dimka said the manufacturers demonstrated conformity to the relevant standards of the organization, adding: “This means their products are safe for us to consume.”
He advised the management of the factories to double their efforts to maintain the quality of their products, as “having the certificate is one thing, and the ability to sustain it in terms of quality, safety and performance, is another thing.
“So it is a big challenge for you because quality is the journey that has no end. The certificate is being loaned to you for a period of three years; after three years, we are going to assess the quality of the products to see if you are still on top of the game,” he said.
According to him, if they were found wanting, the tendency is to withdraw the certificates, noting that among the benefits of the certificate are easy to access to the market nationally and internally, and build consumers’ confidence for attaining the quality.
He, therefore, called on other factories to obtain their own certification, as it is mandatory, and some have already commenced the process.
On his part, the acting Director Operations, DaudaYakub said MANCAP was put in place by SON to ensure that all manufactured products conformed to the standards.
He said this was aimed at protecting genuine manufacturers against unhealthy practices such as production of fake products in the market.
