What is ISI Mark?

The ISI mark is a standards-compliance mark for industrial products in India since 1955. The mark certifies that a product conforms to an Indian standard (IS) developed by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), the national standards body of India. The ISI Mark is by far the most recognized certification mark in the Indian subcontinent.

The ISI mark is mandatory for certain products to be sold in India, such as many of the electrical appliances like switches, electric motors, wiring cables, heaters, kitchen appliances, etc., and other products like Portland cement, LPG valves, LPG cylinders, automotive tires, etc. In the case of most other products, ISI marks are optional.

Why this License is Required?

Registration of the mark is mandatory for the manufacturer of products or goods. A product having ISI ensures that the product is safe to use. The mark gives assurance to the customer that the product is of good quality. However, ISI helps to maintain a good relationship between the manufacturer and the customer.
