Bridging the gap between People-Technology-Safety, the Indian Government has taken a big leap by bringing “Electronics and Information Technology Goods Order 2012” (Requirements for Compulsory Registration), ensuring safer products to Indian consumers.

The Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), under Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, against the aforesaid order, has regulated 30 electronics and information technologies goods under compulsory registration scheme through Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

The initial regulation mandated registration with BIS for product categories ranging from Electronic Games (Video), Laptop / Notebook / Tablets, Plasma/LCD/LED Televisions, Optical Disc Players With built in amplifiers, Microwave Ovens, Visual Display Units, Video Monitors, Printers, Plotters, Scanners, Wireless Keyboards, Telephone Answering Machines, Amplifiers , Electronic Musical Systems, Electronic Clocks with Mains Power, Set Top Boxes, Automatic Data Processing Machines like servers, blades and desktop computers.

The second line of products added into the purview of regulation are Power Adapters for IT Equipment’s, UPS of rating ≤ 5 kVA, Inverters of rating ≤ 5 kVA, Mobile Phones, Cash registers, Point of Sale Terminals, Copying Machines /Duplicators, Smart Card Readers, Mail Processing Machines / Postage Machines / Franking machines, Passport Reader, Power Adaptors for Audio, Video & Similar Electronic Apparatus, DC or AC Supplied Electronic Control gear for LED Modules, Sealed Secondary Cells / Batteries containing Alkaline or other nonacid, Electrolytes for use in portable applications, Self-Ballasted LED Lamps for General Lighting Services, Fixed General Purpose LED Luminaries

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. The registration issued by BIS is valid for 2 years and is further renewed for 2 years based on applicant request.
