We want to confirm that the office of Samsung Electronics West Africa in Lagos was yesterday besieged by the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON). SON’s action was apparently due to a miscommunication between both parties regarding the registration of products in Nigeria.
Samsung is working in collaboration with SON to reach an amicable resolution of the matter.
Samsung also wishes to reiterate that it is a best practice company, with footprints in over 79 countries worldwide. As an ethical company, Samsung will not willfully disrespect the laws and regulations in countries where it operates.
