BIS Certification for Ferroalloys Products

25. April 2024

The Ministry of Steel has issued a Quality Control Order (QCO) covering various types of ferroalloys to align with the quality standards specified in Indian standards IS 1110, IS 1170, IS 1171, and IS 1470 for ferrosilicon, ferrochrome, ferromanganese, and silicomanganese, respectively. This order requires manufacturers affected by the QCO to obtain a BIS License under the ISI scheme to ensure their products are eligible for import, sale, and usage in India.

The QCO aims to enhance product quality and foster trust among industries and consumers. It mandates tests for chemical composition, particle size, and extraneous contamination.

For exports to India, manufacturers must acquire BIS certification under the Foreign Manufacturers Certification Scheme (FMCS) or BIS registration for certain products under the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS). These certifications are essential for the products to be marketed in India, ensuring their quality, safety, and reliability as per Indian Standards (IS).
