BIS CERTIFICATION FOR TOOL STEEL FORGINGS IS 13387: 1992
Steel forgings are metal components that have been molded and created via the forging process, which includes using force to shape and deform the material while it is still solid. It is widely used in industries, including automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, construction, and industrial machinery.
To ensure the product quality of steel forgings, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has made it mandatory for manufacturers to undergo BIS registration and obtain the BIS ISI mark before selling it in the market. Manufacturers can use the ISI Mark on their products only after obtaining a license from BIS that is granted after BIS registration. The presence of the ISI mark on a product indicates that it complies with BIS's stringent quality standards.

4.Hot forgings between flat dies shall be used to produce long bars of rectangular, square hexagon sections.
5.Hot forging shall be performed in a hammer or press with sufficient capacity to adequately work the raw material's core during forging.
6.Each forging must be marked with the information as specified in the standard.
7.The standard mark (ISI Mark) may also be applied to the material.
8.The Manufacturer must obtain a BIS license from Bureau to use a standard mark (ISI Mark).
