All production that meets the Indian Standard and is licensed should bear the standard ISIMark. To use a standard mark, the manufacturer must obtain a BIS license for one mark pipette from the Bureau of Indian Standards. The Bureau grants a BIS license based on a successful assessment of the manufacturing infrastructure, quality control and testing capabilities, and production process. A BIS certification for one-mark pipettes is required to ensure that the product meets the requirements of applicable Indian standards.
