The Bureau of Indian standards (BIS) has announced on their official website that are undertaking a brand wise registration for electronic and information technology (IT) good manufacturers. This includes all products with the exception of set top boxes. If more than one brand is owned by a particular brand owner, only one Registration Number will be allocated to the brands. It is further clarified that registration is only applicable to manufacturers (factory production/product assembly).
In addition, under the electronics and IT goods registration scheme, the validity of registration and renewal required for self declaration of conformity will only be valid for one year. The registration shall be renewed for a further period of one year on every occasion if the registered user is also eligible for renewal. This will be dependent, among other things, on the registered user's performance. The registration renewal may be for a period longer than one year, but not exceeding three years at a time.
