BIS Certification for Copper Products

2. May 2024

The Indian Ministry of Mines, together with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), has recently mandated BIS ISI Certification for copper products through a new quality control order (QCO). This directive aligns with efforts to ensure that copper products meet the stringent safety and quality standards outlined in the applicable Indian standards.

List of the relevant products:

  • Copper Wire Rods for Electrical Applications 
  • Copper Rods and Bars for Electrical Purposes 
  • Copper strip for electrical purposes 
  • Copper rods and bars for general engineering purposes 
  • Solid-drawn copper and copper alloy tubes for condensers and heat exchangers 
  • Solid-drawn copper tubes for general engineering purposes 
  • Copper Tubes for plumbing- Specification 
  • Wrought Copper Tubes for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Purposes 
  • Copper wires for general engineering purposes

This QCO will take effect from 19th October 2024. The rollout date for small enterprises is 19th January 2025, for micro enterprises 19th April 2025. It specifically targets the enhancement of the quality of copper products. The initiative not only aims to elevate product standards but also seeks to foster trust between industries and consumers. By setting a clear framework for compliance, the QCO serves as a crucial tool in reinforcing the integrity of copper products circulating in the Indian market.

Manufacturers of copper products must secure the BIS License in accordance with the stipulations of the QCO prior to its effective date. This move underscores the government’s commitment to consumer safety and the promotion of high industry standards. The regulation is poised to have significant implications for manufacturing processes, compliance strategies, and market dynamics within the copper industry.
