BIS CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY UNDER SCHEME
BIS CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY UNDER SCHEME IV
To make sure products are good for both businesses and consumers in India, we need to set quality standards. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is like the quality guardian in India. It makes sure products meet these standards and gives them a special mark to show they're good. BIS can check all kinds of things, like products, services, and systems, to make sure they are up to the mark. This helps people trust that what they're buying is safe and of good quality. BIS certification is a must for products that have to follow these standards. Now, let's dive into what the BIS Certificate of Conformity is all about.
Certificate of Conformity (Scheme IV)
BIS now issues Certificates of Conformity (COC) under Scheme-IV, which follows specific rules. These certificates are for products made according to the standards in Indian rules. If you make a product that needs a COC, you must get one from BIS. You also have to put a special COC Number on each of those products. These products should be made with materials that have the BIS Standard mark (ISI Mark).
The government has made some products follow these rules to protect national security, public interest, and to stop unfair trade practices. To get a Certificate of Conformity (COC) from BIS, they first check if the manufacturer's facilities and processes are good enough. They visit the manufacturer's place to make sure everything is okay. For a product to get a COC, the manufacturer needs to meet the rules mentioned in the standard for that product. If the product is made correctly and follows the rules, BIS will give it a COC.
Products Covered under Certificate of Conformity (COC)
BIS has recently included these two products in the COC scheme:
· Stampings/laminations/cores of transformers (with or without winding)
· Requirement of Retro-Reflective Devices for Bicycles.

6. COC Issuance: If your factory passes the inspection and everything is fine, BIS gives you the Certificate of Conformity.
