The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), has commenced capacity development training for 43 members of the National Mirror and Technical Committees on Governance of Organisations and the Anti-Bribery Management Systems Standards.

The training is on the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems Standards.

It is to enhance the knowledge of the participants to aid their positive contributions to standardisation works in the field of governance of organisations.


Director-General, SON, Osita Aboloma, speaking at the opening of the programme in Abuja, said the training is critical and necessary, as the QMS standard is the foundation from which all management systems standards evolve.

According to him, most of the current works in the field of governance in organisations, anti-bribery management systems, compliance management systems, whistleblowing, and anti-fraud control uses a systematic approach in elaborating standards.

He told the participants that building their capacity in the subject area would be very helpful in assisting them to contribute meaningfully to the current and future standardisation works, nationally and internationally.

Aboloma, represented by the Director, Corporate Affairs and SON Consult, Felix Nyado, said the training would be in three batches; two in Abuja and one in Lagos would provide easy access to the participants from various locations.

He admonished the members to maintain Nigeria’s active membership of the various ISO technical committees through regular comments and participation in the mandatory balloting as required.

Osunbor, advocated more Nigerian public and private sector operators to embrace certification to the international management systems standards to enhance their global competitiveness.

He expressed deep appreciation to SON on behalf of the committee members for the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and assured of their commitment to represent Nigeria diligently at technical committees for international standards development.
