BIS raids production facilities of motor manufacturers28. April 2022
A team of Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) officials from Chandigarh, along with security forces, raided several companies in the Amritsar area of Punjab state. Only motor manufacturers of energy-efficient induction motors were searched. Under the current law, these motors cannot be manufactured or sold without proper certifications. According to a report in the Times of India, the focus of the search was on so-called squirrel-cage motors. This type of electric motor must meet BIS standards and carry a seal of approval. BIS staff found a total of five non-conforming motors during the search operation. BIS will now take the appropriate action against the defendants. A violation of the certification requirement and labeling of products is regulated by the Bureau of Indian Standard Act of 2016.
Electric motors require BIS certification in order to import them into India or place them on the market. Depending on the product, a distinction is made between BIS-ISI or BIS-CRS certification.
