What is BIS Registration & Certification?

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is India's National Standards Body. It was established in 2016 under the BIS Act. BIS develops standards, marks goods, and certifies quality. It also ensures that products and services meet Indian Standards (IS). BIS operates a scheme for marking precious metals and jewelry. BIS registration is a thorough process. It ensures that products meet quality and safety standards set by BIS.

Manufacturers follow the application procedure for BIS registration. This helps them understand the steps they need to take. The conformity assessment checks if products meet the relevant standards. The Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) makes it mandatory for certain products to undergo BIS registration before entering the Indian market. Scheme-I and Scheme-II outline the requirements for the ISI mark and product registration. The ISI mark is a certification given by BIS. It shows that the product meets standards. Product testing, certification costs, BIS licenses, and standards compliance are all important parts of the process. Certification bodies authorized by BIS assess products to ensure they meet the necessary criteria. BIS registration plays a crucial role in maintaining quality and safety standards in the Indian market.
