Dangote Cement Bags SON Certification Award



Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has certified Dangote Cement as having passed the Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme (MANCAP), a development the agency said has stood the company out among its competitors in the industry.

Director-general of SON, Osita Anthony Aboloma, who made this disclosure also said that a new revised standard for cement production in Nigeria had been released.

The SON DG, who was represented by the agency’s director of standard development, Mrs. Chinyere Egwuonwu, stated this during a partnership facility tour of the Dangote Cement Plant, Obajana, Kogi State by top officials of the organisation from the northern part of the country.

He noted the new certification was an attestation to the Dangote Cement Plc’s quality products and its capacity to conduct in-process and in-house tests on its raw materials and finished products in conformity with relevant national standards.

He said, “Through our conformity assessment activities, we have always visited your plants on routine quarterly factory inspections to ensure compliance of your products to relevant national standards. The outcome of these activities is the certification of your products to the Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme.”

The SON boss further disclosed that the revised standard for cement NIS 444-1:2018 has been approved by the Standard Council of Nigeria and was ready for implementation.

Aboloma commended Dangote Cement for its active participation especially in the area of standards development saying the agency appreciated the company’s effort and would be ready to partner and collaborate with the company’s management.
