India BIS Compulsory Registration Scheme - Standard Update

December 11, 2014

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) recently published a revised guideline for an Amendment-1 to IS 13252:2010 (Information Technology Equipment Safety: General Requirements). From now onwards, the BIS will not accept any report without the mentioned amendment.

Guideline for New Applicants:
1. Get product tested and test report as per IS 13252 (part-1): 2010 + A1: 2013.

2. Use new undertaking as per Annex-B of the concerned guideline along with the other mandatory documents and the test report.

Guideline for Existing Registered Manufacturers:
1. Submit any base model for which registration is granted earlier to the BIS accredited labs, such as UL India, for testing and additional assessment as per Annex-A in the guideline.

2. Submit undertaking as per Annex-C along with the test report to the BIS.

3. The BIS will provide a stamped photocopy the Test Report as per Annex-A as acknowledgement. No further action from BIS side is necessary.

4. If anyone fails to complete the additional testing before May 31st, 2015, the BIS will cancel his product’s registration with 15 days of notice period given.
