BIS REGISTRATION FOR ELECTRONIC & IT PRODUCT

BIS REGISTRATION FOR ELECTRONIC & IT PRODUCT

INTRODUCTION

BIS Registration: In the era of globalization, world trade is growing rapidly, and Manufacturing and Import/Export businesses are increasing drastically. Regardless of your position, you may be an Importer, Trader, Supplier, or, most of all, a Manufacturer, some liability of compliance & regulatory requirements needs to be fulfilled before introducing any products in the market.

BUREAU OF INDIAN STANDARD

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a National Standard Body established under the BIS Act 1986. BIS is responsible for managing the certification system to ensure product quality, security, safety, and trust. BIS is involved in various certification schemes to provide BIS licenses to manufacturers to use the standard mark on their products. Although obtaining BIS certification is voluntary, the Indian government has made it mandatory for some products.

BIS certification is a process of certifying that a product conforms to a certain Indian standard and is therefore considered safe for use in the Indian market. BIS certification is mandatory for certain products, such as electronics and electrical goods, to be sold in India. Obtaining BIS certification requires passing various tests and inspections to ensure the product meets the relevant Indian standards.

When we talk about Electronic & IT products, significant quality control compliance is required, known as BIS Registration. This page will give you complete knowledge about BIS Registration under the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS). To understand the need for BIS registration certification, let's draw some attention to the history, organs, and nature of the BIS License.

Let's understand the BIS certification scheme for Electronics and IT Products.

BIS REGISTRATION FOR ELECTRONIC & IT PRODUCTS (BIS COMPULSORY REGISTRATION SCHEME)

In 2012, the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) was introduced by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), jointly with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), to protect Indian consumers from spurious and substandard goods. BIS Registration for Electronics and IT products comes under the compulsory registration scheme. As per this scheme, obtaining BIS registration certification for electronics and IT products is mandatory before launching them into the market. The Ministry also issued Compulsory Registration Orders, which state that no one shall manufacture or store for sale, sell, import, or distribute goods that do not meet the Indian standards stipulated in the order and do not bear the Standard Mark with a unique registration number.

Under the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS), the Bureau of Indian Standards issues a BIS registration certificate to manufacturers to use a standard mark with a unique registration number on their electronics and IT products. BIS Registration is based on your self-declaration of conformity for goods and articles as per Indian Standards. BIS licenses provide third-party assurance to the consumers that the product complies with the quality standards required by law and is safe to use. BIS Licence for electronic products and their operation is governed by the conformity assessment scheme outlined in Scheme II of Schedule II of the BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018.

We know that so many questions are tingling in your mind at this moment, but don't worry. Let's have a look at the complete BIS Registration process (BIS registration Requirement/Procedure/timeline/Cost).

Products covered under Compulsory Registration Scheme

To be precise, 79 categories of products have been covered under CRS till now, 63 of which were added by MEITY, five by MNRE, and eight by MHIPE. If you are a manufacturer of any electronic or IT products, we are sure that you are willing to know your product's specifications and Indian Standards. BIS Mandatory product list is given at the end of this article. You can learn more by searching the product names or Indian Standards at the end of this article for products covered under BIS compulsory registration scheme.
