Extension of mandatory BIS certification scheme for electronic products

Thursday, October 8, 2020

Last week, on October 01, 2020, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) announced the implementation of the 5th phase of the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS). Within the next six months, the products added in the new phase must be fully BIS certified in order to be exported to India or distributed in the country.



The following products have been added to the certification catalog in Phase 5:

Product Category Indian Standard
Wireless Microphone IS 616:2017
Digital Camera IS 13252 (Part 1): 2010
Video Camera IS 616:2017
Webcam (finished product) IS 616:2017
Smart Speakers (with and without display) IS 616:2017
Dimmers for LED Products IS 60669-2-1: 2008
Bluetooth Speakers IS 616:2017


In April 2020 the fourth phase of the certification came into effect with a six-month transition period. Due to various factors that led to some delays there was an extension of the deadline until April 2021. Consequently, the 4th and 5th phases will be implemented at the same time.

Since 2012, the BIS has been gradually expanding the certification catalog and continuously adding additional goods. BIS certification mandatory for many electronic products for industrial and consumer uses. Factory inspections are also required for some products.
