April 27, 2015: Manufacture and supply of low cost and low quality LED lighting products continuously threaten the manufacturers in India. However, to take care of this issue, the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeiTY), under the Union Ministry of Information Technology and Communications, has started the Compulsory Registration Order (CRO) scheme, which will become operational from May 7, 2015.
BIS has also defined the safety standards under the Electronics and Information Technology Goods Order, 2012, issued by DeiTY. BIS has made it mandatory for 30 product categories to comply with the applicable Indian safety standards and mandatory registration, before they are imported to, traded, distributed, or sold in India. This initiative will control infiltration and usage of non-compliant electronic goods and to ensure consumer safety. All manufacturers need to have the IS 16046 certification by August 13, 2015.
The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is also considering to make the BIS mark mandatory for LED bulbs from 1 watt to 26 watts very soon.
