The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has implemented Market Surveillance of products covered under the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS). Scheme II of BIS (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018, is based on manufacturers self-declaring conformity. Due to the increase in the number of licenses under this scheme, BIS has implemented Market Surveillance to ensure only products that comply with applicable standard(s) are available and/or sold in the market.
The Procedure for carrying out surveillance includes:
Collection of Surveillance Cost
Submission of Invoice(s) to Authorized Indian Representative
Revision of Surveillance Cost
Drawl of Sample
Final Stage of Surveillance
Disposal of Samples/Remnants
