The African Accreditation Cooperation (AFRAC) on Monday, 28th May, 2018 has formally admitted Nigeria National Accreditation Service (NiNAS) as a full member. NiNAS has been an Associate member of the Cooperation since 1st May, 2017 but has now obtained full membership. This change of membership status is a welcome development as this will give NINAS stronger representation in the accreditation business in Africa and , by extension, in other parts of the world.

With this achievement, NiNAS is better positioned for its role as a National Accreditation body for Nigeria and other African countries.
