Nigeria: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Growing global emphasis on food regulations for health and trade is compelling Nigeria to seek improving its food supply systems. The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has played the lead role over the past two decades. The international accreditation of the agency’s two major laboratories in recent years has reasonably boosted its capacity to enforce Nigeria’s food safety regulations. Other Government of Nigeria (GON) agencies are also becoming active in managing and supporting the country’s food safety systems. The Food Safety and Quality Bill now awaiting legislative passage and assent by the President in order to become law, has elevated the country’s food safety management from an inter-ministerial committee status to a council-level for more effective and direct supervision of the country’s Vice President.
