Registration process

The Registration process involves submission of an application form through an applicant (local manufacturer, local office/representative of the foreign manufacturer, importer or dealer) and a compliance test report from a BIS recognized laboratory as per the applicable Indian Standard.

The mandated electronics and information technology goods shall be labeled as “Self declaration - Confirming to IS (Standards No.) Registration No: XXXX” before they are placed in the Indian market after obtaining registration from BIS.
