LM-PCR (Legal Metrology-Packaged Commodity Registration, LMPCR)3. May 2023
The Legal Metrology-Packaged Commodity Registration, short LM-PCR, is mandatory for products available in the Indian market in pre-packaged form irrespective of their end-use. The LMPC-regulations have been in place since 2011 and are based on The Legal Metrology Act, 2009.
When a product is placed in a package of whatever nature, has a pre-determined quantity, and was packed without the purchaser being present, it automatically comes within the purview of The Legal Metrology (Packaged Commodities) Rules.
Products like electronic gadgets, consumer durables such as TVs, ACs, mobile phones, tablets, access points etc. as well as non-durable goods such as cleaning products, cosmetics etc. all fall under the purview of the above LMPCR registration requirements. Legal Metrology Packaged Commodity Registration is used to prove the safety and quality of packaged goods.
