Mandatory certification for certain power supplies in India1. July 2019
By the end of 2016, the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology had already published the corresponding order. The certification applies to power supplies for servers and storage devices and must comply with the BIS standard. The manufacturer of the power supplies is responsible for certification. This means that even if one buys power supplies and installs them in one of his devices, they must have a separate certification. The certification process includes submitting the BIS application documents and submitting a test report of the respective power supply unit.
Here is an overview of the most important key points: The manufacturer must have a branch or an authorized representative in India. The equipment must be tested in India and the results must be available within 90 days of submission of the application documents. The manufacturer has 7 business days to clarify any discrepancies with the BIS, otherwise certification will be refused. If the certification is successful, a BIS R-number will be issued which is valid for two years. India Certification can provide this complete service for you. Our experience and contacts to test laboratories and the BIS shorten the duration and enable a smooth certification process.
