BIS Certification

The list has been brought into public discussions last month and the official announcement on phase 4 came sooner than expected. The BIS certification scheme has been implemented in several phases since 2012. The last update of phase 3 was in 2017.

BIS certification is required for many industrial and consumer electronic products. Factory inspections are also required for some products.

If you have products affected by this regulation or have uncertainties about it, please feel free to contact us. We can check the BIS certification requirements for your case individually. You can send us an email or call us any time +49-69-2713769261.

You can find more information about our BIS Service Package and the BIS Certification Process here.
