Effective from 1st April 2017, the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON) & Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have implemented a revised SONCAP Certification process for few product types categorized as “life endangering products”.

The revised SONCAP Certification process for these products mandates that they are to be certified only through the following routes:

  • Route A – Product Certificate 1 (Unregistered/Unlicensed Status) which is valid for six months
  • Route C – Product Certificate 3 (Licensed Status) which is valid for one year.

For more details, please contact Tammy de Beer at Intertek South Africa, which is the licensed certification agents for SONCAP.
