An Overview of BIS CRS Registration

CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme) is regulated under Scheme – II of BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018. In 2012, CRS Scheme was primarily introduced by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology and in this Scheme, it is compulsory for manufacturers to obtain BIS CRS Registration Certificate for their electronic products before launching them into the market. This Scheme is based on self-declaration of conformity by the manufacturers. Over the past years, the number of licenses under the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) has grown significantly.

Also, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology notified Electronics & Information Technology Goods (Requirement for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2021 in October 2012 for 15 categories of electronics products. On November 13, 2014, 15 more electronic product categories were added by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. In October 2016, the Ministry also notified the Indian Standard for Indian Language Support for Mobile Phones. Another 13 electronic product categories were added by the Ministry under this order in August 2017. In September 2017, the Ministry of New & Renewal Energy notified 5 more products under the Solar Photovoltaics, Systems, Devices & Components Goods (Requirements for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2017.

According to the Order, no individual can manufacture or store for sale, import, or distribute products that don't follow the Indian Standard specified and don't bear the Standard Mark with a unique Registration Number obtained from the Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS).

What is the Meaning of CRS?

CRS stands for Compulsory Registration Scheme, which was first introduced by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology for electronic and IT products. Currently, there are 76 products under this Scheme. All individuals and businesses who are storing, selling, manufacturing, importing, or distributing electronic products under the product list must apply for BIS CRS Registration. Any individuals who are the manufacturers of electronic products must apply for this Registration after getting their product tested from BIS recognised labs.

Then, BIS registers the manufacturers under BIS CRS Registration Scheme who are allowed to declare that their articles conform to the Indian Standards. Once the entity is successfully registered, they are permitted to use the Standard Mark as informed by the BIS CRS Registration is allotted to the applicant.
