The management of SON has approved a new structure in Anambra, we now have two state offices in Awka and Nnewi and a State regional office also in Awka
The Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has created an additional Area office and a Regional office in Anambra state to expand and deepen its operations in the state.
Olanrewaju Onipede, Coordinator of SON in Anambra during the presentation of the Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP) to deserving firms in Awka, the state capital on Wednesday.
Olanrewaju who is in charge of Awka office (Anambra 1) said the new Area office otherwise known as Anambra 2 was situated in Nnewi while the regional office was also in Awka.
He said the decentralised structure was to increase the reach of the regulatory body to the firms across the state as well as ease the rigour they encountered in their bid to access SON services and processes.
He said the organisation had developed a concessionary policy to encourage genuine cottage businesses and enable them regularise their operations.
