CRS – Compulsory Registration Scheme

CRS is product certification scheme covering Electronic and IT equipment, up scaling the competitiveness for Indian Manufacturers and giving Indian Consumers the right to enjoy world class quality-compliant goods. The policy stops the dumping of faulty/non-compliant products into the markets. The Compulsory Registration Order is that no entity shall manufacture or import or sell or distribute goods which do not conform to the specified Indian Standard.

Bureau of Indian Standards allows only a manufacturer to apply Standard Mark with a unique R-number onto the product. The registration is based on self-declaration basis for conformity of goods and articles. The product is first tested in a BIS certified lab and then is registered with the department with manufacturer name, address, brand name and type of product. Same manufacturer can produce for different brands.

The grant of licence and its operation under Compulsory Registration Scheme are carried out as per the conformity assessment scheme under Scheme - II of Schedule - II of BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018.

Our coordination with Testing laboratory, officials and our knowledge about guidelines and parameters for product registration helps our clients minimizing their expenses and registration time.
