BIS is the National Standard Body of India established under the BIS Act 2016 for the harmonious development of the activities of standardization, marking & quality certification of goods & for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.

BIS has been offering traceable and tangible benefits to the national economy in a number of ways – providing safe reliable quality goods; diminishing health hazards to consumers; promoting exports and imports substitute; control over propagation of varieties etc. through standardization, certification and testing.

The purpose of BIS is to examine the samples of products when they are preliminary and surveillance stage. India has a total of eight central, four regional and three branch laboratories of BIS. Government of India Encourages BIS Registration Because of the Following reasons:-

BIS registration

What is BIS Registration Product Scheme?

What are the Benefits of BIS Registration for Manufacturing Units in India?

Till now, over 500+ BIS Registration have been granted for over 50+ Indian standards in 40+ different countries. It is crucial for the manufacturer to obtain BIS Registration as it involves the following benefits, which are given bellow:--

  • Ensure Quality Standards

    BIS adopts the holistic approach for the implementation of quality compliances for all manufacturers. Entities under BIS registration are bound to follow a certain standard for the manufacturing of the goods. The premise where the production is usually carried out is scrutinized by BIS investigating officers through surprise visits. It enables the BIS to continually monitor the production facilities for product quality and given compliances.

  • Impart Authenticity to Product

    Products with no quality certification may go out of sale overnight but cannot garner the customer’s credibility or trust. Uncertified products are vulnerable to poor performance and might have potential health risks. Unfortunately, most of the end-users are not familiar with such facts.

    On the other hand, BIS certified products left no complaint in this aspect as they promise to deliver high-quality performance and unparalleled reliability. This is perhaps one of the most significant advantages of BIS registration.

  • Minimizing Environmental Risk

    BIS certification covers 900 types of products, and some of them are potentially dangerous from the environmental point of view. Electronic items, in particular, have a severe environmental risk and health hazard. BIS has taken several measures in this direction and implements a definitive protocol for producing such items to eliminate environmental risk.

    In addition to that, BIS has prohibited the use of certain materials and chemicals under its prescribed norms. Hence, it plays a vital role in standardizing the quality standard for safety and environment associated with the industrial sector.

  • Lab Testing for Quality Inspection

    Since BIS works on the standardization of the quality, it has incorporated state of the art lab in different parts of the country. These labs’ were built to test a different array of products for quality. During the on-site inspection of the registration facilities, the investigating officers randomly pick up a few samples and send them to the lab for testing.

    Once certified, the product will then send back along with the test report. Although this process sounds a bit tedious, it is highly imperative for maintaining flawless quality.
