What is the procedure for obtaining BIS licence?

BUREAU OF INDIAN STANDARDS (CENTRAL MARKS DEPARTMENT) -

Guidelines for Grant of Licence (GoL) as per the conformity assessment Scheme – I of Schedule – II of BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018 These guidelines stipulate the procedure for Grant of Licence (GoL).

These are to be read in conjunction with BIS Act 2016, BIS Rules 2018 and BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations 2018. In particular, the provision for Grant of Licence (GoL) are addressed in Regulation 4 & 5 and Scheme - I of Schedule - II of BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018. Any situation, in general, not covered in these guidelines is to be dealt as per the provisions of Act, Rules and Regulations by the Regional Offices (ROs) and Branch Offices (BOs). General Principles for GoL 1. a) The Bureau grants a licence based on successful assessment of the manufacturing infrastructure, production process, quality control and testing capabilities of a manufacturer through a visit to its manufacturing premises. Conformity of the product to the relevant standard(s) is also established through third party laboratory testing or testing in the manufacturing premises or a combination of both. b) The applicant may choose one of the two options available for grant of licence (as given at Sl. No. 3 & 4 below). Application 2. The application shall be made in the Form-V as specified in BIS conformity assessment regulations 2018 - Scheme I (process of submitting application online to the Bureau is available on its website). The applicant shall be required to submit the relevant documents as per the Form-V. Option 1 for GoL 3. a) The applicant may apply for grant of licence to the Bureau along with the documents mentioned at Sl No. 2 above. b) A visit will be paid to the factory of the applicant for assessment of the manufacturing infrastructure, production process, quality control and testing capabilities, and the sample(s) will be drawn for testing in third party testing laboratory. c) The sample(s) may not be drawn in case the grant of licence is to be considered on the basis of factory testing only. Factory testing is permitted for products as listed at Annexure-I. However, new products coming under certification may be considered on factory testing basis even if these are not listed in Annexure-I. Option 2 for GoL (not available to foreign manufacture rs) 4. a) The applicant may apply for grant of licence to the Bureau along with the documents mentioned at Sl. No. 2 above and conforming Test Report(s) of the product samples manufactured by the applicant and of raw material(s) (if applicable) issued by a third party testing laboratory. The application under option 2 shall be subject to conditions specified at c) to l). b) A visit will be paid to the factory of the applicant for assessment of the manufacturing infrastructure, production process, quality control and testing capabilities, and drawl of samples for testing in the third party testing laboratory. The test report of the sample(s) drawn during the factory visit will be used for review purposes. c) For the following products option 2 is not available: i) Products such as cylinders, valves, regulators etc., where a joint inspection along with another statutory authority is required or products such as cement where approval is required form another statutory authority. ii) Packaged Drinking Water (PDW) and Packaged Natural Mineral Water (PNMW); and iii) Products for which licence is to be granted on the basis of factory testing (Annexure-I) d) While exercising option 2, the applicant must first register itself on the IT software, wherein he will get a unique code. The applicant will have to submit this code to the third party testing laboratory (refer 4 e) below while submitting the samples for testing and get the receipt for the same. The receipt will be required to be uploaded on IT software after the submission of the sample(s) to the laboratory. The samples for testing shall be selected based on the grouping guidelines for the product (if any) made available by the Bureau and the varieties to be covered under the scope of the licence. Laboratory e) Test reports of the following laboratories shall be accepted: i) Laboratories established, maintained or recognized by the Bureau for the product (including Group-2 labs as specified under the Laboratory Recognition Scheme of the Bureau); ii) Government laboratories empanelled by the Bureau; iii) Any other laboratories as decided by the Executive committee of the Bureau; Test reports shall be the latest f) The test reports of the product shall not be more than 90 days old. The period for counting 90 days shall be from the date of issue of the test reports to the date of receipt of the application in the BO. In case of multiple test reports for one product, the latest product test report shall not be more than 90 days old and the oldest product test report shall not be more than 180 days old. g) If a BO is of the opinion that the test report(s) to be considered for Grant of Licence need to be accepted beyond specified time norms due to genuine reasons, the case may be put up for the approval of concerned DDGR with proper justification. DDGR after due consideration of the facts in the recorded justification, may take a decision whether to allow acceptance of the test report(s) which are not within the time limits specified above.
