NAFDAC urges importers to strictly follow agency’s guidelines

The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has urged importers to adhere strictly to the agency’s guidelines on importation.

NAFDAC Director in charge of Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, John Okwori made the appeal while speaking with newsmen in Enugu yesterday.

Okwori said that the agency had opened various avenues to educate importers on what to do to avoid seizures and destruction of unregulated products imported into the country.

He explained that NAFDAC recently reviewed its website which contained all import guidelines and other registration procedures for imported products.

He advised importers to check the website to ensure that they adhered to the guidelines.

“Our various zonal, state and liaison offices are also open for you to make inquires and feel free to ask questions.

“As for those importers who want to cut corners, the agency will apply the full weight of its sanction on them and their products,” he said.
