National Quality Policy is the foundation on which all other provisions, requirements and Institutional structures of our national quality systems are built.
This policy provides relationships and boundaries for standards, metrology, accreditation and Conformity Assessment Services. It is our firm belief that that if Nigeria get these four pillars of Quality Systems to work as defined in the approved policy, our products and services will be more acceptable and attractive to our trading partners.
The successful implementation of this policy will open up Nigeria’s non-oil export trade, create jobs and make our economy more competitive through improved quality products and services. The policy ensures that people and organizations are held responsible for their actions or in actions leading to any form of breach of requirements of the standards.
Thank you Mr. President and Commander in Chief for approving this policy. Many thanks to The Honorable Minister for Industry, Trade and Investment, FMITI for his leadership and efforts in getting the policy approved.
My appreciations to all the partners that contributed to this great work namely all the MDAs, Organized Private Sector, World Bank Group, UNIDO, European Union, USAID-CFNA, and many Professional bodies and Institutes.
NiNAS will continue to provide support at the implementation phase as she may be required.
By C. O. Okanya, Director General and Chief Executive Officer, NiNAS.
