BIS ISI CERTIFICATION FOR CLINICAL THERMOMETERS PART 1-SOLID STEM TYPE IS 3055(PART 1)

Introduction

A thermometer is one instrument used to measure temperature. In several fields, including business, science, health, meteorology, and daily life, it is a vital tool. Animal and human body temperatures are measured using specialised thermometers known as clinical thermometers. 

They are essential to healthcare and are commonly found in residences, clinics, and hospitals. These thermometers come in a few different variants, one of which having a solid stem. Solid-stemmed clinical thermometers are vital for healthcare, public health, and sickness prevention. 

They give accurate temperature readings, diagnose illnesses, and provide patient care and monitoring. Solid-stemmed clinical thermometers are versatile, user-friendly, and enhance patient comfort and safety. These thermometers are essential to maintaining and improving overall health and wellness, whether at work or at home. 

All clinical thermometers with member 1-Solid stem types must now be a member of the ISI Certification Scheme in accordance with IS standard IS 3055 (Part-1): 1994.

This product cannot be sold, imported, or exported into the Indian consumer market without the ISI Mark.

What is ISI/BIS Certification?

In 1987, the Indian Standards Institute (ISI) changed its name to the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The ISI Mark is the official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards issues to producers of different kinds of goods. It has been used as a conformity marking for industrial items and to denote compliance with Indian standards (IS) established by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Through the product certification programme, manufacturers have been granted authorization by BIS to use the ISI Mark on products that meet applicable Indian standards.

The only manufacturers (local or international) who receive ISI Certification are those who create the final product. No product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors will get this.

Testing Carried Out For Clinical Thermometers

Here are the key tests conducted for ISI/BIS certification of clinical thermometers (solid stem type) as per IS 5482-1:

- Temperature Range - Measured at ice point and steam point to verify range of 35°C to 42°C.

- Accuracy - Tested at 4 points in range (35°C, 36°C, 38°C, 42°C) and must be within 0.1°C of the standard thermometer.

- Time of Reading - Time taken to reach final reading should be within 3 minutes. 

- Residual Heat Effect - Thermometer checked for residual heating by rapid cooling after heating, reading must not exceed specified limits.

- Thermal Aftereffect - Verified by heating to 42°C and cooling to 36°C, subsequent reheating, reading must be within limits.

- Effect of Immersion - Tested by immersing to different depths, reading must be within accuracy limits.

- External Pressure Effect - Reading is checked under compressed air at 150kPa, no visible damage should occur.

- Supply Voltage Variation - For electronic thermometers, measured at different voltages, accuracy must be maintained.

- Rigidity of Stem - Bending tests conducted to ensure integrity.

Along with testing, manufacturer's quality control process is evaluated through factory audits before granting certification.
