By PIB Delhi

Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), the National Standards Body of India, formulates Indian Standards in various sectors at present, 87% of the Indian standards are harmonized with ISO/IEC standards for which the International Standards exist. During the last 03 years, 197 products were notified by the Centre for compulsory BIS certification

The Union Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today informed that the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), the National Standards Body of India, formulates Indian Standards in various sectors. Through its standards, BIS ensures quality consciousness amongst manufacturers, industry, consumers & various government departments. These standards benefit industries of any size and across all sectors by ensuring efficiency in processes and quality of products/services, helping in the adoption of new technologies, building productivity, reducing costs, and enabling access to markets. The standards also provide a range of other benefits including facilitating trade, providing investment confidence, fostering innovation and supporting government policies and regulations. These National Standards are developed with the objective of harmonious development of the activities of standardization, and quality assurance of goods and articles. Till date, 21,890 Standards for products, process specification, service sectors, code of practice, methods of test terminology have been published by the BIS.

As a policy, while developing any Indian Standard, BIS technical committees consider the availability of an International Standard (International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on the subject. The committees try to align the standard with the International standards to the extent possible At times, ISO/IEC standards are not adopted in totality by the concerned technical committee taking into account the country-specific concerns on health, safety, environment, national security, and prevention of deceptive practices. At present, 87% of the Indian standards are harmonized with ISO/IEC standards for which the International Standards exist.

The government of India has identified twelve Champion Services Sectors (CSS) in the Indian National Strategy for Standardization (INSS) for focused attention so as to realize their full potential. These Champion Services Sectors include:

  1. Information technology and Information Technology Enabled Services (IT & ITeS)

  6. Audio Visual Services
  7. Communication Services
  8. Legal Services
  9. Construction and Related Engineering Services
  10. Environmental Services
  11. Financial Services and
