Nigerian Quality Award Scheme (NQA)
The Nigerian Quality Award (the outcome of re-positioning and re-branding of the NIS Product Quality Award that was suspended in 2012) is a voluntary Award scheme to recognize and reward exceptional product performance through compliance with specific criteria and established Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) approved by the SON Governing Council.
The Award criteria are based on a combination of the outcome of analysis of factory samples, market samples, sector based index analysis and quality management process analysis using the following KPIs:
- Leadership intent towards quality Operating environment & Best Practice adoption.
- Consumer awareness Information & analysis.
Products that meet the requirements will be honored at a grand ceremony with presentation of certificates and plaques.
The manufacturer will be issued with licence to use the prestigious Award logo on promotional and communications materials, which confers the additional following benefits for the product:
- Special marketing advantage
- Access to international markets with improved global competitiveness.
