ISI stands for the Indian Standards Institution, now known as the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). BIS is a government organization responsible for establishing and maintaining quality standards to ensure consumer safety and product quality. ISI certification indicates that a product conforms to specific Indian quality and safety standards. It is often regarded as a symbol of quality and safety in the Indian market. While ISI certification is typically voluntary, certain products, like electrical appliances, LPG valves, and LPG cylinders, must have the ISI mark to be sold in India. Manufacturers misusing the ISI mark may face license suspension or revocation, and the BIS conducts regular inspections to ensure compliance. Consumers can report counterfeit ISI marks to the BIS.
The ISI mark is a logo, usually displayed on products, packaging, or in product documentation. Only manufacturers who have been granted an ISI certificate by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) are authorized to use the ISI mark on their products. The ISI mark is a registered trademark of the BIS, and its unauthorized use is illegal.
