Every customer wishes to get value for the products they purchase. Keeping this in mind, the Government of India has established a body known as the Bureau Of Indian Standards (hereinafter called BIS). BIS lays down standards (Indian Standards) with regard to the quality and safety of the goods. Further, those products which adhere to the standards mentioned by BIS are certified. The BIS reviews the Indian Standards once in 5 years. BIS was formerly called the Indian Standards Institution and is a founder member of the ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation). BIS oversees the following activities :
Unless specifically mentioned, the adoption of Indian Standards is voluntary. However, an Indian Standard shall be binding if it is mentioned in the contract or made mandatory either by law or orders of the Government.
