BIS is a National Certification Body under the IECEE-CB Scheme primarily in electrical components sector.

Regulations

The BIS product certification scheme for use of ISI mark is essentially voluntary in nature, and is largely based on ISO/IEC Guide 28, which provides general rules for third party certification system of determining conformity with product standards through initial testing and assessment of a factory quality management system and its acceptance, followed by surveillance.

In addition DeitY has also issued requirements for compulsory registration of electronics and information technology goods. Currently there are 15 types of electronic products (laptops, printers, scanners, set top boxes, data processing machines, plasma/LED TV/LCD, music systems, microwave ovens, etc.) included In the mandatory registration scheme. Scheme requires safety testing at BIS accredited testing laboratory and mandatory product registration at BIS. 

The products, which are not subject under mandatory registration scheme, can voluntary obtain STQC S mark Approval. This is a third party certification scheme in electronics sector promoted by STQC Certification Service. The scheme is intended to provide adequate level of confidence regarding safety of product by means of factory inspection, product testing (as per appropriate IEC safety standard) and subsequent surveillance of the manufacturer.
