BIS Certification Requirement for Wheel Rims Postponed Again17. June 2022
The Indian Ministry of Heavy Industries announced another delay of the certification for wheel rims. According to the new Automobile Wheel Rim Component (Quality Control) Amendment Order, 2022, the BIS certification requirement for wheel rims will be postponed until June 22, 2023.
The order has already been amended multiple times, most recently in March of this year.
Originally, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) mandated the BIS-ISI certification requirement for September 2021. Since then, the authorities postponed the introduction of the certification obligation several times. In the beginning, vehicle manufacturers had repeatedly criticized the introduction of the certification obligation. By now, manufacturers have come to terms with the certification obligation. However, now it is the BIS that has struggled with pandemic-related delays in the certification processes.
According to the new regulations, all rims must be BIS certified and marked with the BIS ISI logo before being imported into India starting June 22, 2023.
Rims must be certified under different standards depending on their intended use. For passenger car rims, for example, the IS 9436 standard applies.
Recently, the procedural instructions and test regulations for certification were also adapted. For example, the authority has changed the grouping regulations so that more product tests are now necessary for certification.
