New product list for mandatory BIS certification5. November 2019
The mandatory BIS certification is now mandatory for a further 13 products. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the equivalent of the German Institute for Standardization (DIN) or the International Standards Organization (ISO). Until now, certification according to the BIS standard was voluntary; with the announcement of the new, third product list, this is now mandatory for other products. The newly announced products include LED lighting, UPS and inverters with less than 10 kVA, televisions and monitors up to 32 inches, surveillance cameras, adapters and sockets for the household, barcode and fingerprint scanners, smartwatches.
Foreign manufacturers wishing to export their products to India require BIS certification. For some product categories this certification is still voluntary, but not for products on the so-called List 1 and 2 and the newly published third list. Foreign manufacturers seeking certification will need an authorised Indian representative to act as an intermediary between BIS and the manufacturer.
