Profile of Courier Regulatory Department, Nigeria. (Posted 30th May, 2003) Tell your friends about this page! Email it to them.

The Courier Regulatory Department is a specialised arm of the Nigerian Postal Service saddled with the responsibility of ensuring a sustainable development of the courier industry. According to the head of the department, Mr. Simon Emeje, it was born out of the need to sanitise the  fast growing courier sector of the economy. The sector experienced a major turning point in April 2001 when the key players in the courier industry met at the first ever Courier Summit held in Nigeria, the outcome of the communiqué issued at the end of the summit gave birth to CRD.

Core Areas of Activity

  • Registration/licensing of courier operators.

  • Setting standards and regulations for the practice of courier business in Nigeria.

  • Monitoring of courier operations to ensure maintenance of ethical requirements and standard.

  • Monitoring the business environment in search of illegal operators or quacks and clampdown of such.

  • Handling of complaints from courier operators or from the public on ethical matters.

  • Liaising with other relevant agencies like the aviation handling companies, the customs, the police etc to ensure that an enabling environment is provided for courier business.

  • Human capital formation for the industry via curriculum development and training of operators.


Mr. Simon EmejeTo ensure an enduring effectiveness, the department has been simply structured taking into cognisance the dynamic nature of the industry. The CRD is headed by a Senior Assistant Postmaster-General who answers to the Postmaster-General. CRD has six core sections which are the Licensing and Renewal, Ethics, Inspectorate, Media and Publicity, Control Administration, Finance and Compliant and Strategy.
