He assured Stakeholders of shorter turnaround time and more efficient and effective service delivery.

The SONCAP according to him, was introduced in 2005 as a prerequisite for the importation of products into the country, while the online application portal was first introduced in 2015 as an initiative for deploying information technology in facilitating conformance of SON regulated imports to the requirements of applicable Nigeria Industrial Standards.

The SONCAP online application portal has therefore created easy access to SON’s conformity assessment regime for products imported into the country from the confines of homes and offices of customers without undue interface with SON staff, he said.
