Certification requirement for Automotive Glass is moved from AIS to BIS

Thursday, March 11, 2021

IS2553 used to be under the responsibility of the individual Automotive certification agencies such as ARAI or iCAT, but starting August 2021 BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) will be responsible for the products applying to this standard. Therefore, certification from then on is no longer voluntary, but mandatory.



The certification process is now to be carried out by all importers with BIS. This process consists, among other steps, of product tests in India as well as a factory audit. In addition, some test requirements are changing such as abrasion tests or moisture tests.

The change applies to the following product types:

SI. No. Goods or Articles Indian Standard Title of Indian Standard
(1) (2) (3) (4)
1. Safety Glass (Architectural, Building and General uses) IS: 2553 (Part 1):2018 Safety Glass – Specification Part 1 Architectural, Building and General uses
2. Safety Glass (For Road Transport) IS: 2553 (Part 2): 2019 Safety lass – Specification Part 2 For Road transport


Since the list is constantly changing and expanding, it is often not clear whether a product is subject to certification or not.
We can help you here and provide reliable information about the regulations for your product.
