Brief: As the National Standards Body of India, BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) is responsible for standards setting, product certification, compulsory product registration and laboratory accreditation. All goods exported to India need to pass the BIS certification and be labeled accordingly before they can enter the Indian market. Currently, the compulsory products certification under BIS can be divided into two categories: ISI certification and CRS registration. On April 1, 2020, the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology issued a notification to add 12 categories of products to the BIS-CRS product catalog. If the products in this scope have not obtained the BIS-CRS certificate, they cannot be allowed to export to India.
Within six months from the date of the notification, the "Electronics and Information Technology Goods (Requirements for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2012" will apply on these 12 new categories of products. After this Order came into effect for the particular product category, the manufacturer had a label transition period up to three months. During this period, the product needed to complete CRS registration and affix a label at the port.
BIS-CRS REGISTRATION INTRODUCTION
CRS registration certification is a compulsory registration of products. According to the mandatory registration requirements decree issued by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and the Ministry of New Energy and Renewable Energy (MNRE), CRS now covers 44 electronic products and 5 solar photovoltaics. Related products, such as video games, notebooks, tablets, LED/LCD/ion TV, mobile power, battery cells, etc.
For CRS registration certification, manufacturers need to conduct product testing in BIS-approved Indian laboratories, and register with BIS before using CRS labels on products.
