India Enforces BIS Certification Requirement for Door Fittings

15. February 2024

The Government of India has introduced the mandatory BIS-ISI certification for door fittings with the Door Fittings Quality Control Order, which comes into effect on October 23, 2023. This crucial step reflects the government’s ambition to improve the safety and reliability of door hardware in the domestic market through standardized quality guidelines.

According to the new regulation, all door fittings, including various types of door closers and door handles, must comply with the established Indian IS standards. The regulation provides for the provisions for small and medium-sized enterprises to enter into force at a later date in order to give them more time to adapt, while products for export are exempt from this rule. The regular deadline for certification is April 23, 2024.

By introducing this regulation, the Indian government is demonstrating its commitment to improved quality standards and increased consumer protection. The initiative is expected to have a significant impact on the door fitting industry as it helps raise the level of products available in India while solidifying consumer confidence in local and imported products.
