The Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency (NEMSA) on Wednesday advised Nigerians not to accept any meter without the agency’s seal or label.

The Managing Director of NEMSA Peter Ewesor, gave the advice at the official presentation of QMS ISO 9001:2015 certificate to the agency by Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) in Abuja.

Mr. Ewesor said that with the ISO certificate that had been received by NEMSA, any meter deployed for installation henceforth must have the agency’s label and seal.

He cautioned that any meter that had no NEMSA label and seal should be rejected by customers.

“I have to state it clearly that any meter that is installed in your house or in your business premises, if you don’t see the seal of NEMSA, do not accept it,” he said. “That means such meter is fake, can not be trusted and the quality of such meter can not be guaranteed.”

In his remarks, the SON Director General, Farouq Salim, said with the presentation of ISO to NEMSA, the agency had joined a privileged class of Quality Management System certified and upgraded organisations in the country.
