Fake Goods: SON requests ISO certification training for Customs officers

AMG Logistics

The Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) has requested that Customs Officers should be trained in ISO certifications in an effort to curb influx of fake and substandard goods into the country.

The Director-General of SON Mallam Farouk Salim made the request when he led management of SON on a visit to the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Customs Service Col  Hameed Ali (rtd) in Abuja during the week.

The Customs boss Ali, in his response, had urged the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to upgrade its IT infrastructure to enable a smooth interface with the NICIS II platform of the service.

Salim emphasised the strategic role played by the Nigeria Customs Service in the fight against the importation of substandard products.

He also acknowledged the historical support given to his organization while requesting for more strategic engagement in the light of their recent return to the ports.

Ali agreed that synergy between critical government agencies at the ports will greatly enhance efficiency and would do much good in protecting the nation as well as its citizens.

The meeting corroborated the readiness and willingness of the Nigeria Customs Service to discharge its statutory responsibilities of protecting the national economy through trade facilitation, revenue generation and anti-smuggling activities while providing the needed support in safeguarding the nation from the importation of substandard goods through collaboration with SON as the designated authority.
