Deadline for BIS Certification of Steel Products in India is getting closer

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

As published in our news from December 2019, the Indian government strengthened the regulations of steel imports into the country. The BIS certification scheme, published July 22, 2019 in the Gazette of India by the Ministry of Steel was extended.

BIS Certification

Depending on the product category, BIS Certificates need to be obtained immediately or within a certain period of time. By April 2020 the final implementation period for the last category of steel products will be determined and all listed products will need to be BIS certified to be imported into India.

The process of BIS Certification includes a factory inspection by the Indian authorities and product tests in an accredited Indian testing facility. After successful completion of these steps the certification will be granted and the products may be marked with the ISI mark. The BIS Certification is valid for one year and an annual follow up factory inspection is required to maintain the validity. After the first two years the validity will be expanded to two years. Additionally, yearly marking fees will need to be paid.

If you have products affected by this regulation or have uncertainties about it, please feel free to contact us. We can check the BIS certification requirements for your case individually. You can send us an email or call us any time +49-69-2713769261.
