Get BIS CRS Certification with Corpbiz

The BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018, Scheme-Il governs the CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme). The Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (Meity) established the CRS Scheme in 2012. Under this scheme, producers must get a BIS CRS Certificate for their electronic products before releasing them into the market. The foundation for this scheme was based on self-declaration of conformity by manufacturers. In recent years, there has been a notable increase in the quantity of permits granted under the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS).

Additionally, in October 2012, the Electronics & Information Technology Goods (Requirement of Compulsory Registration) Order, 2021, covering 15 product categories of electronic devices and components, was issued in a notification by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. They also notified the addition of 15 new electronic product categories were added by Meity on 13 November 2014. Additionally, the Indian Standard specified in the order for Indian Language Support for Mobile Phones was issued by the Ministry in October 2016.

Under this directive, the Ministry introduced 13 more categories of electronics product categories notified by the Ministry in August 2017. In September 2017, the products under Solar Photovoltaics, Systems, Devices & Components Goods (Requirements for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2017 was amended by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy to include five more goods for manufacture or store for sale of electronic goods.

No person must, in accordance with the order, produce, store for sale, import, or distribute any goods which do not conform with the Indian Standard as prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS Act) and do not bear the Standard Mark.

What is BIS Certification for India?

Manufacturers must get BIS registration (CRS) for some items or BIS certification (ISI) under the Foreign Manufacturers Certification Scheme (FMCS) to export to India. For these items to be introduced and sold in the Indian market, the BIS Certification is required. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) issues BIS Certification with a unique registration number obtained in India or BIS Registration to guarantee the reliability, safety, and quality of items that meet Indian Standards (IS).

Understanding CRS

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology originally implemented the Compulsory Registration Scheme, or CRS, for electronic and IT products. There are 76 goods covered by this scheme as of now. Any person or company that manufactures, imports, manufactures, stores, sells, or distributes goods or electronic devices under the product list is required to register for BIS CRS Registration. Those who manufacture electronics and information technology goods are required to apply for this registration after having their products examined in labs recognised by the BIS.

Subsequently, companies that are permitted to declare that their articles conform to the Indian Standards are registered by BIS under the BIS CRS Registration Scheme. The BIS CRS Registration is given to the applicant, and upon successful registration, the company is authorised to use the Standard Mark.

Who can apply for BIS CRS Registration?

The BIS CRS scheme was introduced for IT and electronic items, requiring BIS registration for anybody manufacturing electronic goods. Registration will be approved after their product is tested at the BIS laboratory. Under the BIS CRS scheme, registration is granted by the BIS.

Different Forms Required for BIS CRS Registration

The following are the forms required for BIS CRS Registration:

Form-I

Application for grant of new license

Form-II

Format for the undertaking of test reports

Form-III

Format for affidavit

Form-IV

Format for letter of nomination of AIR (Authorised Indian Representative)

Form-VI

Application for Renewal of License

Form-VIII A

Inclusion or Model Withdrawal

Form-VIII B

Changes of other details in the scope of the license

Documents Required for BIS CRS Registration

The following are the documents required for BIS CRS registration:

  • The manufacturing unit's business license.
  • The manufacturer's ISO certificate.
  • The authorisation letter if the signatory is not the manufacturing facility's head.
  • Application form.
  • Nomination Letter of Air India.
  • Testing documents (filled-out CCL and CDF).
  • Affidavit and Authorised Indian Representative (if the manufacturer is foreign).
  • Test Report.
  • Trademark Certificate.
  • Trademark Authorization Letter (if the manufacturer is not the owner of the trademark).
  • Undertaking of the applicable devices' product manual.

Procedure for BIS CRS Registration

The procedure for BIS CRS registration is mentioned below:

  • The first step is to get your product's ISI number.
  • After that, you must give the BIS-certified lab the testing sample.
  • After that, we'll file and submit the application and attach the test results and supporting documentation.
  • After the application and all supporting documentation are submitted, BIS will review both.
  • The BIS CRS Registration Certificate will be issued when they have reviewed and approved the application.

Validity of BIS CRS Registration

The BIS CRS Registration is valid for two years, after which it may be extended if the product and the standard remain the same.

Guidelines for E-Labelling of Certain Products under the BIS CRS Registration Scheme

  • When devices with e-labels are being sold, distributed, imported, or stored, the product package has to have a physical label on it.
  • A detachable adhesive label on the box is appropriate for devices that are packaged in bulk rather than individually.
  • The person in charge must program the information compliance, and the details must be safeguarded so that a third party cannot alter them. As long as the information is easily accessible and immutable, it can be found in the program menu.
  • Even if it is displayed electronically, any applicable regulatory information that needs to be on the product package or user manual must be supplied in accordance with the applicable regulations.
  • Electronically Labeled Products must be able to access the e-label without the need for an additional plug-in or tool.
  • The user must be able to view the information without the need for any unique authorisation or access codes. In any scenario, the information must always be available in the device's menu in more than four steps.
  • This information may also be included as part of the e-label if the main user manual or user guide is provided via another electronic medium.
  • The product website can include instructions on how to get the information. The user handbook or product box has to provide information on how to access the website.
  • Detailed instructions on how to obtain BIS must be given to users. The operating instructions, user's handbook, or insert included with the product package must all contain the instructions.
  • The electronically displayed Standard Mark shall adhere to all BIS-mandated specifications.

The BIS registration is optional in most of the cases. However, the Central Government has mandated the BIS registration for a variety of items for conformity with Indian Standards due to a number of factors.

A BIS certificate for import is required for every good coming into India to guarantee the product's dependability, safety, and high calibre and to verify that the item conforms with all relevant Indian requirements.

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has originally implemented the Compulsory Registration Scheme, or CRS, for electronic and IT products.

In order to authorise the use of the Standard BIS Mark and a distinct registration number by manufacturers of certain items, the Bureau of Indian Standards developed the BIS Compulsory Registration Scheme or BIS CRS. This scheme is based on the manufacturer's self-declaration of conformity for goods.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) registers the producers under its registration program, enabling them to state that their products meet Indian Standards. Subsequently, the Bureau notifies the registered producers when they may use the Standard Mark.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the national standard body of India. The smooth progression of the standardisation, labelling, and quality certification of goods, as well as any issues related or incidental to them, are under the purview of BIS.

BIS certification under Scheme-I is only valid for a maximum of two years at first. An application with the necessary fee and the supporting documentation for the current license must be filed in order to extend its validity.

According to IS 13252 part 1, smartwatches shall get registration under the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and have WPC approvals for wireless connectivity.

Seventy-six products in total are covered under this scheme.

No, the compulsory registration order does not apply to spare parts that are used to manufacture finished goods. This registration only applies to the finished goods.
