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 6527:1995 for stainless steel wire rods.

This standard specifies the specifications for stainless steel wire rods. This standard does not apply to wire rods used to make welding electrodes.

IS 8910:1978 specifies the general requirements for material supply. Unless otherwise agreed in the order, the process used to manufacture the steel and the product is left to the manufacturer's discretion. Each ingot must undergo sufficient reduction and discard to ensure that it is free of pipe, harmful segregation, and order defects. The surface of the wire rod must be smooth and free of harmful surface defects. End rings should be trimmed sufficiently to remove fins.


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

  • Chemical composition
  • Tensile test
  • Hardness
  • Dimensional tolerances
  • Corrosion Resistance


Each coil of wire rod must be marked with the manufacturer's name, trademark, cast number, and steel designation. The Standard Mark (ISI Mark) may also be applied to the material. The Manufacturer 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.
