BIS Certification for Water Dispensers Due to New Quality Control Order (QCO) in India8. February 2024
On October 23, 2023, the Indian government published a new Quality Control Order (QCO) for water dispensers. The affected standards refer to the ISI certification scheme (Scheme I) of the BIS certification. BIS-ISI certification is required for many different product groups such as electronics, household appliances, safety glass, etc.
The introduction of the BIS certification requirement is intended to improve the quality of water dispensers and give consumers confidence in the safety and reliability of these devices. The Ministry expects that the implementation of these measures will contribute to a safer and more regulated market for water dispensers, which is in line with the broader objective of ensuring consumer safety and well-being.
Starting on April 1, 2024, BIS certification will therefore also be mandatory for water dispensers.
