LOW - VOLTAGE SWITCHGEAR AND CONTROLGEAR: SWITCHES,DISCONNECTORS, SWITCH DISCONNECTORS AND FUSE - COMBINATION UNITS IS/IEC 60947 :PART 3 : 2012
The disconnector is mechanical switchgear that meets the isolation function criteria (IEC 60947-1) in the open position. The isolating parameter goal is to turn off the power to all or a specific area of the installation for safety reasons by dividing the installation or segment from all sources of electrical energy. Switch disconnectors merge the properties of (load) switches and disconnectors. Fuses have a short-circuit breaking capacity and, in the form of full-range fuses, can also be used to protect conductors and specific loads against overloading. IS/IEC 60947:PART 3: 2012 standard includes low voltage switchgear and controlgear: switches, disconnectors, switch disconnectors, and fuse-combination units. As per the guidelines of BIS Bureau of Indian standards, low-voltage switchgear and control gear: switches, disconnectors, switch disconnectors, and fuse shall be registered under the compulsory registration scheme BIS registration as per IS/IEC 60947: PART 3: 2012. BIS Registration provides the right to manufacture, import/export, store, and sell or distribute this product in the Indian Market. BIS covered it under the Compulsory registration scheme to protect Indian consumers.
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.
