India BIS Certification
Bureau of India Standards (BIS) is the National Standard Body of India established under the BIS Act 2016 for the harmonious development of the activities of standardization, marking and quality certification of goods and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. BIS has been providing traceability and tangibility benefits to the national economy in a number of ways - providing safe reliable quality goods, minimizing health hazards to consumers, promoting exports and imports substitute, control over proliferation of varieties etc. through standardization, certification and testing.

In January 1947, the Indian Standards Institution (ISI), as the then national standards body of India, was registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. Its mandate was to prepare and promote standards for adoption by Indian industry. Later, its mandate was expanded to include Product Certification activity through the Indian Standards Institution (Certification Marks) Act, 1952.

The BIS Act 2016, Rules and Regulations framed there under authorizes BIS to undertake conformity assessment of products, services, systems and processes. Under the Product Certification Scheme - I, BIS grants licence to use the standard mark or grants certificate of conformity as per conformity assessment schemes given in BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018 - Product Certification Scheme for use of ISI Mark. The conformity assessment schemes are laid down in BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018 which are based on principles laid down in IS/ISO/IEC 17067: 2013.

The Product Certification Schemes of BIS aims at providing Third Party assurance of quality, safety and reliability of products to the customer. Presence of BIS certification mark, known as Standard Mark, on a product is an assurance of conformity to the specifications. The manufacturer is permitted to self certify the licenced products after ascertaining its conformity to the Standard. Through its surveillance operations, the Bureau maintains a close vigil on the quality of certified goods. The conformity is ensured by regular surveillance of the licensee’s performance by surprise inspections and testing of samples, drawn both from the market/factory.

The Product Certification Scheme - I covers 137 products in 15 categories, mainly for industrial products and consumer goods, such as household appliances, automotive tires, steel materials and so on. The certification mode is System 5 which means factory audit, sampling, testing and maintenance are required. In addition, in order to protect consumer safety and in accordance with relevant laws and regulations, for certain products, such as gas tanks, pressure regulators and valves, BIS requires each batch of goods to be checked by BIS officials before they are put on the market.

Besides, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has been operating a Foreign Manufacturers Certification Scheme (FMCS) since the year 2000 under BIS Act, 2016 and Rules & Regulations framed there under. Under FMCS, license is granted to a Foreign Manufacturer for use of Standard Mark on a product that conforms to an Indian Standard. The Scheme is applicable for grant of license for all products except Electronics & IT Goods notified by MeitY. The licence is granted by Foreign Manufacturers Certification Department (FMCD) located at BIS Headquarters, New Delhi.

BIS is also operating a Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) for Electronics & IT Goods for the product categories notified by the Department of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY). 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 photovoltaics. For CRS registration, manufacturers need to conduct product testing in BIS recognized Indian laboratories, and register with BIS before using CRS labels on products.
