Mandatory BIS Certification for QCO Bolts, Nuts and Fasteners

Mandatory BIS Certification for QCO Bolts, Nuts, and Fasteners

The information you provided indicates that as of July 21, 2023, the Department for Promotion of Industry & Internal Trade (DPIIT) has been actively developing and implementing Quality Control Orders (QCOs) for various products to address concerns related to the import of sub-standard goods, prevent unfair trade practices, and ensure consumer safety and environmental well-being.

The latest QCOs have been issued for nuts, fasteners, and bolts. Companies, depending on their size, have different deadlines to comply with the QCO requirements. Large companies must comply within 6 months, Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) have 9 months, and small industries have 12 months to comply.

Before the QCOs for nuts, fasteners, and bolts, the DPIIT had issued QCOs for potable water bottles and flame-producing lighters. The QCO for potable water bottles focuses on ensuring quality and safety for bottles made of copper, stainless steel, or aluminum. Under this QCO, the production and import of potable water bottles with these materials will require compulsory certification according to the appropriate standard.

The implementation of these QCOs aims to maintain high-quality standards for the specified products, promote fair trade practices, and protect the interests of consumers and the environment.

Companies in these sectors must be aware of the QCOs and make the necessary arrangements to ensure compliance within the given timelines. Failure to comply may result in penalties or other regulatory actions enforced by the authorities.
