• UPS/Invertors of ration smaller or equal to 5kVA,
• DC or AC supplied electronic controlgear for LED modules,

Compulsory registration will be required for all the products listed above (except for sealed secondary cells/batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes for use in portable applications) within six months from the date of publication of the interim extension. As such, the effective date will be in May, 2015. The excepted category has nine months to comply with the compulsory registration requirements, i.e., in August, 2015. A new standard — IS 16242 (Part-1):2014 — is introduced for UPS and inverters instead of IS 13252-1 as mentioned in an earlier draft notification.
