The material must be of consistent quality in accordance with good manufacturing and inspection practices. Steel must be free of defects of any kind or degree that would be detrimental to its intended end-use. The chemical composition of the steel must meet the requirements of the standard.


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

  • Chemical analysis
  • Tensile test
  • Hardness test
  • Erichsen Cupping Test
  • Dimensions and Tolerances
  • Corrosion Resistance and Any Other Tests


The manufacturer/supplier must provide material with appropriate packing to prevent damage and deterioration in quality during storage, handling, and transport. Every package must be legibly marked with paint or any other marking system that shows the name or trade-mark of the manufacturer, weight, thickness, size, steel designation, and the cast number or identification marks that allow the material to be traced back to the cast or casts from which it is made.

The standard mark (ISI Mark) may be applied to each bundle containing the fabric. Manufacturers must obtain a BIS license from the Bureau of Indian Standards to use a standard mark (ISI Mark). The Bureau grants a license based on a successful assessment of manufacturing infrastructure, production process, and quality control and testing capabilities during a visit to its manufacturing premises.
