The meeting was to clarify and provide knowledge and understanding to entrepreneurs on the matter of obtaining a license, law, and to ensure the licensee to comply marking display rules about the standard mark License and information on industrial products in an electronic data format.
For this meeting, TISI planned to take new measures to implement the TIS mark with QR code as a mandatory requirement.The applicable formal statement has not yet been announced.TISI will propose new TIS mark requirement in each TIS standard issued in the the future as “Particular Requirement”,which is expected to be launched from October to November 2020,and the expected effective date is January 21,2021.
Referring to the procedure,TISI had not offered documented procedure yet of how to obtain the QR code. Tentative procedure is that, TISI will create a URL link for QR code and give to licensee (importer). It is still uncertain if licensee will require to submit additional application to request this URL for QR code or not. TISI will try to create a system online so that licensee can request URL link for QR code online in order to reduce the process.
