POINTS NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED TO GET BIS CERTIFICATE
The applicant should opt for a reliable BIS agent or testing organization in case he/she no prior experience regarding BIS registration or if the applicant does not have any guidance regarding this.
The laboratory where the applicant organization is planning to test its products should possess the authorization for testing. This laboratory should not be in a process of auditing at the time of testing. The reason is, in case the testing laboratory is being audited, then its testing authorization will not be given importance until the completion of its auditing.
Prior to dispatching of product sample, the applicant organization should check the entire shipment procedure to make sure about timely delivery of sample to the testing laboratory.
The applicant needs to prepare the documents on time to avoid any delay of its submission. There are several documents where signatures of brand owner, manufacturer and Indian Representatives are needed. Moreover, these documents require Notarization by manufacturing company and these needs to be stamped by Indian representatives and brand owner as well. If the organization is unable to comprehend the implied meaning of documentation rules, then chances are there that the original copies of documents may be sent to India to get these countersigned to prove their originality.
Accuracy of CDF needs to be verified and descriptions of the list of critical components need to be mentioned in details.
It needs to be kept in mind that the product test report becomes invalid after 3 months of the issue. If BIS documents submission is not done within that 3 months period, then the applicant has to start the entire procedure again along with new testing samples.
To avoid any difficulty, the BIS documentations should be prepared on time and hard copies need to delivered to India prior to completion of testing. The applicant should request the BIS certification agency to finish address verification procedure within 7 days prior to completion of product testing.
BIS usually requires around 2 weeks to either authorize the registration or to go for additional requests. The applicant should be prepared for sending certification requests for repeated times and delay associated with certificate approval. The delay may extend to 1 month to 2 months which is common in such situation.
