The requirements to obtain Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) Compliance Certificate
The Employees’ Compensation ACT 2010 establishes the Employees Compensation Scheme (ECS) to replace the workmen’s Compensation scheme in line with global best practices and trends. The ECS provides compensation for employees who suffer injuries/diseases in the course of their employment. In addition, it provides rehabilitation for injured employees in work places and replacement of loss of productivity to the employer. It is a no-fault claim scheme
The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund is targeted at protecting private sector employees (whose employers were then mostly multinationals) from financial difficulties in the event of either old age, cessation of employment, invalidity or death since most employers then did not have such provisions in their employment policies.
NISTF Compliance Certificate is one of the requirements you need as a corporate body to do business in Nigerian Oil & Gas sector and other government regulated services.
