Companies established in Nigeria are subject to national regulations on environmental protection. These regulations are made available to any investor. Investors in the manufacturing sector are encouraged to design products matching the ISO 9000 standard or equivalent.

Investors planning to establish risk-enterprises (working with toxic products or producing toxic waste) will previously ask for an environmental impact assessment done by and independent certified company and join the conclusions to their application for a business authorization. Such enterprises should prepare an emergency plan with the local authorities.
