The Director-General of the organisation, Dr Joseph Odumodu, made the disclosure at a news conference preceding the signing of the agreement in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said that the purpose of the agreement was to implement and enforce standards for imported used cars in Nigeria.
Odumodu listed these companies as Quality Assurance Projects, Meditect Scientific Limited and Cotecna Destination Inspection Limited.
He also listed areas to be inspected by these firms on any motor vehicle imported into the country.
According to Odumodu, areas to be inspected by the firms include the vehicle structure, mechanical aspects, safety inspection, vehicle emission test and valuation of vehicles.

The SON boss said the companies should not inspect or certify vehicles that were seriously damaged, vehicles that have reached their life span and vehicles with outstanding data recall or remedial action.
He said that the firms should not allow or inspect vehicles from countries that had suffered radiological contamination.
Odumodu said that fees chargeable by these companies before they inspect imported used vehicles in the country would not exceed N20,000.
