BIS Certification: A New Mandate for Plywood and Wooden Flush Door Shutters in India1. December 2023
In a recent communication from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the central government of India has highlighted the importance of quality control in the plywood industry. This step is taken after consultation with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), which is responsible for the BIS certification for manufacturers of these and other products and also manages the ISI Mark.
The Plywood and Wooden Flush Door Shutters (Quality Control) Order, 2023 stipulates that the goods or items contained must comply with the associated Indian standard. In addition, they should bear the ISI mark of the BIS. Any breach of this order will result in sanctions under the provisions of the Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 2016.
This Regulation shall enter into force six months after the date of its official announcement on August 29, 2023. However, separate provisions have been made for small and micro enterprises defined in the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises Development Act. For small enterprises, the regulation will take effect nine months after its notification, and for micro-enterprises, twelve months.
