Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) visits MPR in Frankfurt26. October 2023
On October 24, 2023, representatives of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) from New Delhi visited MPR International GmbH in Frankfurt am Main. There was an intensive exchange between representatives of BIS and the Managing Directors of MPR Verena Numssen and Julian Busch.
The new strategic approaches of BIS were discussed, in particular the expansion of the regulations for the ISI Mark, which is awarded in the course of BIS ISI certification for India.
In recent months, numerous Quality Control Orders (COO) have been published and new products have been added to the catalog of products requiring BIS certification.
These include footwear, steel products, chemicals, textile products and aluminum products.
Details on factory audits, which may only be carried out by BIS auditors from India, were also discussed.
In addition to new certification regulations and information on factory audits, the approach of Indian customs, which receives intensive training from BIS to ensure that no non-certified products and raw materials without an ISI mark can be imported into India, was also discussed in more detail.
MPR International supports numerous customers in obtaining their BIS-ISI certificates and BIS-CRS certificates.
