BIS REGISTRATION FOR TELEPHONE ANSWERING MACHINES IS 13252 (PART 1): 2010*
The telephone answering machine is an electronic device designed to automatically respond to incoming phone calls when the recipient is unable to answer the phone. Its functionality involves playing a pre-recorded greeting message that invites the caller to leave a voice message. This device finds extensive use in both homes and offices to effectively manage calls during periods when no one is available to answer the phone.
To ensure the quality of these telephone answering machines, they have been made mandatory for BIS CRS registration under the Indian Standard IS 13252 (part1).
What is BIS CRS?
CRS stands for Compulsory Registration Scheme that was introduced by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) to ensure the safety and quality of certain products. Under this scheme certain products are required to undergo mandatory testing and certification by BIS before importing, selling or distributing them in India.
BIS Registration Requirements
If you want to obtain BIS registration for Telephone Answering Machines, you have to register your product under the CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme), and fulfill the following requirements:
You need to be a Manufacturer and not a Seller: It is important to note that the Indian BIS License is granted exclusively to manufacturers and not to importers or sellers. Importers may act as the Authorized Indian Representative (AIR) of foreign manufacturers and can submit the application to BIS. However, the final license is only granted to the manufacturer.
Mandatory Registration: If you are a manufacturer of any product covered under the CRS Scheme, it is mandatory to register your product before introducing it to the market.
Compliance with Indian Standard Specifications: Manufacturers seeking BIS registration must ensure that their products conform to the requirements of the relevant Indian Standard Specifications.
Self-Declaration of Conformity: As part of the registration process, you need to provide a self-declaration of conformity, affirming that your product meets the necessary standards and requirements.
Manufacturing Infrastructure: The self-declaration also signifies that your manufacturing infrastructure is capable of producing quality products and includes the required testing facilities. You should be able to conduct the necessary product testing within the prescribed period at your premises.
By meeting these BIS registration requirements, you demonstrate your commitment to producing quality products that comply with the prescribed standards, ensuring consumer safety and satisfaction.
