About The Programme

The Nigeria Conformity Assessment Programme (SONCAP) was implemented by the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to ensure the compliance of regulated imported products with the approved Nigerian technical regulations, (i.e. Nigerian or other approved international standards).

It is mandatory to obtain a SONCAP Certificate for the Regulated Product shipments prior to itsexport to Nigeria.

The SONCAP provides assurance to Nigerian consumers of the quality and safety of imported goods. The programme focuses primarily on safety and quality standards.

Compliance with the relevant Nigerian or approved international/national standards results in the issue of a SONCAP Certificate prior to shipment.
