In this competitive scenario, it isn't easy to survive in the market without a standard quality and certified product. BIS license may also be required to sell products in the Indian market.

To get BIS certification and produce a standard quality product, the manufacturer must ensure that their product must follow the specified Indian standard.

Let’s take a closer look at IS 2080:1980 for Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide.

IS 2080:1980 covers Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is primarily used in industry as an oxidizing and bleaching agent, and also as disinfectant. The pattern of use has shifted over time, and hydrogen peroxide is now increasingly used by other industries, including chemicals, electronics, paper, cosmetics, and so on. These industries may have additional requirements, which are addressed in this standard.

This standard specifies the requirements as well as the sampling and testing methods for stabilized hydrogen peroxide.

The material shall be classified into four grades as follows:

  1. Grade 1 - of nominal strength 50.0% by mass
  2. Grade 2 - of nominal strength 35.0% by mass
  3. Grade 3 - of nominal strength 6.0% by mass
  4. Grade 4 - of nominal strength 3.0% by mass

The material must be in the form of clear, colourless liquid that is free of suspended impurities and dust particles. When tested according to the method prescribed, the material's strength shall be not less than 50.0% (m/m) for Grade 1, 35.0% (m/m) for Grade 2, 6.0% (m/m) for Grade 3, and 3.0% (m/m) for Grade 4. The material must also meet the requirements of the standard.


The following test shall be carried out in accordance with method prescribed.

  • Description
  • Strength test
  • Stability test
  • Acidity test
  • Residue on Evaporation
  • Residue on Ignition
  • Test for Iron, Copper, Lead

Packing and Marking

Packing and Marking shall be done as per IS 2080:1980. The material must be packed in bottles or carboys as agreed upon by the purchaser and supplier. All containers used to store the material must be dry and clean. The containers must bear the information as specified in this standard in a legible and indelible manner.

The Standard Mark (ISI Mark) shall be marked on the product's container provided that the material so marked meets all requirements of the specification. To use a standard mark (ISI Mark), the manufacturer must obtain a BIS licence from the Bureau of Indian Standards. The BIS issues a licence based on a successful evaluation of the manufacturing infrastructure, quality control, testing capabilities, and manufacturing process.
