New scheme allows Indian Customs to conduct random sampling for LED products

7. January 2021

For LED products and DC or AC supplied control gear for LED modules, a new regulation has been in effect since last fall according to the announcement of the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), according to which the Indian customs can carry out random checks for deliveries of this product category. The categorization of these products is based on the ” “Electronics and Information Technology Goods (Requirement of Compulsory Registration) Order, 2012″.



Under this new instruction, samples can be randomly selected from consignments of goods, which are then sent to BIS-accredited test laboratories for testing. There, they are tested for limited, non-destructive safety parameters specified by the IS standard applicable to the products and identified by the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).

Furthermore, only those shipments that have met the parameters of these tests will be cleared further by Customs. If the products in this shipment cannot meet the applicable test parameters, they must subsequently be returned to the sender or destroyed at the importer’s expense.

Since 2012, the BIS has been gradually expanding the certification catalog and continuously adding additional goods. BIS certification mandatory for many electronic products for industrial and consumer uses. Factory inspections are also required for some products.
