Nigeria: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

As global food and agricultural trade continues to integrate, Nigeria has formulated structures, strategies, laws, and food control systems including regulatory authorities to enhance public health, food safety and international trade. The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) is playing a key role in promoting science-based food standards. 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. However, the country’s “Food Safety and Quality Bill” expected to elevate the country’s food safety regulations and activities, is still awaiting legislative passage and assent by the President to become law despite the draft’s approval by the country’s Federal Executive Council in 2018.
