Scroll down to check more information regarding the BIS CRS Certification for Optical Disc Players.

What are Optical Disc Players?

Developed in the 1960s by James T Russel, an Optical Disc Player is an electronic device meant to store data. An Optical Disc Player uses laser light or electromagnetic waves that are either within or close to the visible spectrum of light in order to read and write data to or from Optical Discs. This device is also known by other names, such as a disc drive, optical disc, optical storage, or even optical media. While in the past, certain Optical Disc Players could only read from certain discs, in more recent times, such devices can both read and record data. DVDs, Blu-rays, and Compact Disc (CDs) are examples of the type of media that can be read and recorded through Optical Disc Players.

What is BIS CRS?

As the National Standards Body of India, the Bureau of Indian Standards is charged with developing and publishing Indian Standards for specified products being manufactured in or imported into the country. The BIS is the body responsible for granting CRS licenses to manufacturers that are found to be in compliance with the specified Indian standards. As per the Compulsory Registration Scheme, manufacturers must register the notified products in order to certify their quality, safety and reliability and to ensure they are conforming to the relevant standards. The BIS requires Optical Disc[1] Players to be registered as per the IS 616:2017 under the Compulsory Registration Scheme.
