Advert Schedules


The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has the mandate through NAFDAC Act CapN1 LFN 2004 to regulate and control the manufacture, importation, exportation, advertisement, distribution, sale and use of foods, drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, bottled water and chemicals.


The responsibility for the regulation and control of advertisement of these products is vested on the Advertisement Control Division in the Directorate of Registration and Regulatory Affairs.


This is done by issuing advertisement permits after careful evaluation of the claims made and monitoring of the advertisement to ensure that exposed materials correspond to the approvals given.


If a product is used for a wrong indication because its advertisement says so, the ailment will not be cured. It is therefore important that all stakeholders in advertisement must resonate at the same frequency in this renewed fight against unauthorized advertisements in Nigeria especially of herbal products.
