Dear Reader

Important update regarding mandatory BIS certification requirements applicable to manufactures/imports/sales of “Chemical Products” for the Indian market. On 8th October 2021, The Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers issued an official Gazette for quality control order for various products, which includes Polyester Spun Grey and White Yarn (PSY), Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymers, Polyester Industrial Yarn, Polyester Staple Fibres etc.

Notification of Quality Control Orders


“Chemical Products (Quality Control) Orders,2021” for chemical goods/article through Gazette notification date 09-October-2021

The Government of India and The Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers in India have come up with the latest regulation on Chemicals and Fertilizers. There are 9 types of chemical products that are regulated as per the document, along with the implementation date and respective Indian standard. The central government and the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) have made it mandatory for both domestic and foreign manufacturers to register these chemicals under the BIS. BIS has taken this step because chemicals are used in household products that can be life-saving or unsafe to health. BIS Certification assures the quality and safety of the products. Quality assurance can make an imperative contribution to the economic development and social well-being of customers in the form of trade. These chemicals shall conform to the Indian Standard and shall bear the Standard Mark under a licence from the Bureau of Indian Standards (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018.

This order will take effect on April 6, 2022, and will apply to the products or articles listed in column (1) of the table below, but it will not apply to goods or articles intended for export.

In short, along with BIS Certification mandatory, ISI mark is also required for the products to be stored, imported and sold in India.
