The Conformity Assessment Scheme for Milk and Milk Products focuses on the certification
of milk and milk products along with certification of process requirements and the Food
Safety Management System (FSMS) implemented by the dairy unit to improve safety and
The scheme was jointly developed by the Bureau of Indian Standards and the National Dairy
Development Board. It aims to provide a comprehensive approach to the quality ecosystem
in the dairy and milk production sectors.
This scheme covers the requirements of conformity assessment of milk and milk products
for the grant of a BIS license in accordance with Scheme-IX of the BIS (Conformity
Assessment) (Sixth Amendment) Regulations, 2021, to use Standard Mark for goods and
articles conforming to Indian Standard, combined with the conformity of management
system to Indian Standard and conformity of process requirements.
This scheme integrates
- Product Certification from BIS
- Quality Mark from NDDB

certification for milk and milk products. This comprehensive certification scheme covers all
elements of a food safety management system in accordance with IS/ISO 22000, as well as
product certification in accordance with relevant Indian standards and process certification
in accordance with NDDB's quality mark guidelines. Under this scheme, the Bureau may
grant a licence to a dairy unit to use a standard mark. All Dairy units/organizations must
