The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has disclosed that it upgraded its online application portal for the operation of the offshore Conformity Assessment Program (SONCAP) for easy processing of SON regulated imports into Nigeria.
The upgrade, according to SON, was necessary in view of the classification of the portal as a critical national quality and trade Infrastructure.
SON added that the upgrade will provide a one-stop-shop that provides clients opportunity to apply, check status of application, send messages to SON and receive responses as well upload evidence of payments seamlessly.
Other benefits that come with the upgraded portal are: profile of the work done available on clients’ dashboard, no more Tax Identification Number (TIN) error, documents used for application are all on the Clients dashboard and no more mistakes in company name.
‘’The transition of the SONCAP Portal was not only successful but has ensured a necessary upgrade in the system to ensure optimal performance, enhance a seamless operation and more efficient service delivery to customers and stakeholders alike. The process is a reflection of SON’s strict adherence to the Federal Government’s policies to improve on local content and facilitate relevant technology transfer,’’ SON noted,
