Compulsory Registration Scheme

The Compulsory Registration Scheme applies to notified electronic and IT products in India. Such products' production, sale, import, or trading is impossible without BIS approval. The scheme was the result of the joint efforts of the two premier institutions, namely the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY).

The scheme aims to deter the production sub-standards and duplicate products in the Indian marketplace. Products that qualify for this scheme can bear ISI marking issued by the BIS. Let’s delve into the details of this scheme and discover what procedures and paperwork apply to the same.
