The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) says it has reduced the fee for registering a product by 50 percent for micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

Anyakura Eze, representative of the director-general of the agency, disclosed this at the third economic communication workshop organised by the presidency in Abuja on Thursday.

She said the new registration fee was to give owners of small businesses an incentive to register their products.

Eze added that the agency had made registering a product easier, and said such businesses must be registered during the MSMEs clinics that are held monthly across the country.

MSMEs clinic is an initiative of the government launched to identify the problems of small businesses and to give them opportunities for growth.

“There is a 50 percent reduction in registration fees. A product that costs N31, 000 to register is now N16, 000,” she said.

“We have also streamlined registration process to make it easier for MSMEs to register.”

    Officially, may be, but in reality, NAFDAC stinks to the high heavens with frustration. Does any body care to review cases of registration and import applications that have been with NAFDAC for over 3 months, on all sorts of flimsy excuses. What a way to promote enterprise in Nigeria – wielding the sledgehammer against struggling startups, and in this “good” economy.
    Let there be an Open/Public hearing on DOING BUSINESS with NAFDAC if government wants to begin to glean the truth. N Dee.
