High risk products are sensitive items that are consumed and applied on the body hence, the need to control the production, import, export, distribution of ingestibles, skin care and sensitive products by NAFDAC.
A NAFDAC number is a unique number assigned to a single product. This proves the quality of a product which provides consumer safety.
These products are high-risk and vendors found listing in the category without providing a NAFDAC number stand to be sanctioned by the regulatory body. These products are;
- Medical devices
Here is why a NAFDAC number is important;
- Consumer confidence – Having a NAFDAC number boosts consumer confidence because it has been approved for usage and consumption. A potential customer builds trust when safety is guaranteed.
- Quality assurance – Products verified and approved by NAFDAC have relevant assurance that they were produced in a hygienic environment hence, a potential customer is assured.
Prohibition of fakes – Products that have been approved are void of health risks because they have been verified to be suitable for use. This protects the effects of their production on human health.
It is important to state that these importance cannot but be overemphasized to prevent recurring issues regarding the listing of sensitive products without NAFDAC number.
