LOW - VOLTAGE SWITCHGEAR AND CONTROLGEAR: CIRCUIT - BREAKERS - IS/IEC 60947 :PART2 : 2016
The main contacts are designed to be connected to circuits with rated voltages not exceeding 1 000 V a.c. or 1 500 V d.c.; it also includes additional requirements for integrally fused circuit-breakers. A circuit breaker is an electrical switch that operates automatically to protect an electrical circuit from damage caused by excess current from an overload or short circuit. BIS Bureau of Indian Standards has required the low-voltage switchgear and controlgear: circuit- breakers to register as per the Indian Standard IS/IEC 60947: PART2: 2016 under BIS registration compulsory registration scheme. While manufacturing this product manufacture should follow the guideline mentioned in the IS/IEC 60947: PART2: 2016. Before entering Indian marketing, this product should be registered under the BIS compulsory registration scheme.

Here’s the 4 pillars on which BIS Licence depends, without these no applicant can apply for Indian BIS Certification. In order to get BIS Registration, applicant must fulfill following requirements:
- Manufacturer – The first very important thing is that Indian BIS Licence is granted to the manufacturer only, not to importers or sellers. Importer may act as AIR of Foreign manufacturer and can submit the application to BIS. But final licence is only granted to the Manufacturer.
- Manufacturing Address – Proper manufacturing address shall be mentioned in the documents. In case manufacturer have more than one factory location for one product, then separate BIS Licence is required for each location.
- Product - Each product requires its own Licence. But if same product category covers multiple models, then one Licence/ registration no will cover all the models of same product category. Or we can say, one product with different models requires single BIS Licence.
- Brand/ trademark - Each brand or trademark requires its own BIS licence.
