BIS India announces mandatory certification for three types of chemicals, including PP, PVC, etc



India has issued quality control orders for three types of chemicals, including polyvinyl chloride homopolymers, polypropylene materials, and diesel engine nitrogen oxide reducing agent AUS32, which will be mandatory from August 25, 2024.

On February 27, 2024, the Indian Ministry of Chemicals and Chemical Industry (DCPC) officially issued Quality Control Orders (QCOs) for three types of chemicals, namely polyvinyl chloride (PVC) homopolymer, molded and extruded polypropylene (PP) material, and diesel engine nitrogen oxide reducing agent AUS32. The QCOs for these three types of chemicals will be mandatory from August 25, 2024.



The following are the specific Indian standards that need to be implemented for three types of chemicals:

Chemical Indian Standard Standard Name
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) homopolymer IS 17658:2021 Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) Homopolymers-Specification
Molded and extruded polypropylene (PP) materials IS 10951:2020 Specification for Polypropylene (PP) Materials for Moulding and Extrusion
Diesel engine - Nitrogen oxide reducing agent AUS 32 IS 17042 (Part-1):2018 Diesel Engines - NOx Reduction Agent AUS 32 -Specification


For QCOs that require mandatory enforcement, companies need to complete BIS certification before exporting to India, ensuring that each chemical meets the corresponding Indian standards and is labeled with a Standard Mark licensed by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). It should be noted that QCOs are not applicable to chemicals exported from India.


According to the 2016 Bureau of Indian Standards Act (BIS Act), any violation of the above orders will result in punishment.


In this regard, it is reminded that enterprises with relevant printed products must pay attention to the implementation status of QCOs and complete BIS mandatory certification in a timely manner to ensure that products can smoothly enter the Indian market.
