Certification for Helmets will now be Mandatory

8. April 2021

The Indian Standard IS4151:2015 applying to Helmets for riders of two-wheel motor vehicles has been changed to compulsory certification status. Until now, the respective helmets could be certified voluntarily. However, after consultation with the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) the Indian government is of the opinion that it is in the public’s interest to change this.

The BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) will stay the certifying and enforcing authority for the applicable products and standard. The mandatory certification requires multiple steps before a product can be imported, including product tests in India as well as a factory audit.
The change will go into effect in June 2021 and applies to the following product types:

Since the list is constantly changing and expanding, it is often not clear whether a product is subject to certification or not.
