QCO for Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Products

BIS Certification for Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Products

A new QCO (Quality Control Order) has been notified by MINISTRY OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY (Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade) to make BIS Certification mandatory for Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Products.

Date of Implementation for Mandatory BIS Certification

  • This Order may be called the Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Products (Quality Control) Order, 2023.
  • As mentioned in notified QCO, this order shall come into force on the expiry of 6 months from the date of publication of this notification in official gazette.

Compulsory use of Standard Marks for Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Products

After the completion of six months, BIS Certification will be mandatory for all the manufacturers of Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy Products. So, the manufacturers from India or overseas must have BIS Certification to adhere to ISI Mark on the product as per their Indian Standards. Without BIS Certification manufacturers of Aluminium and Aluminium Alloy are not allowed to sale their product in the Indian market.

As mentioned in this QCO, if any person who contravenes the provisions of this order shall be punishable under the provisions of the Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 2016.
