Circuit breakers are vital safety devices designed to protect electrical circuits and the equipment they power from overcurrents, short circuits, and electrical faults. They act as automatic switches that can open and interrupt the flow of electricity when a fault is detected, preventing potential fires, equipment damage, and electrical hazards. Circuit breakers are widely used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, serving as a more efficient and reusable alternative to fuses. These devices offer the advantage of being resettable, unlike fuses that must be replaced after a fault. Their crucial role in electrical protection and system reliability has made them a cornerstone of modern electrical infrastructure.
IS/IEC 60947 (Part-2) is an important set of standards for manufacturers of circuit breakers. These standards set safety requirements and guidelines for these devices, ensuring they are designed to function securely. Compliance with IS/IEC 60947 (Part 2) helps manufacturers meet these legal requirements and ensures that their products adhere to industry-specific regulations. Manufacturers must meet stringent design, construction, and testing requirements to produce devices that can be trusted in various applications.
Note: Manufacturers of circuit breakers are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration guarantees the safety and quality of these electrical devices in the Indian market. The mandatory BIS registration underscores the importance of stringent quality control measures, testing, and adherence to established safety standards for these devices, thereby assuring consumers of their reliability and safety in various applications. It is essential to ensure that circuit breakers available in India meet the highest quality and safety benchmarks.
Bureau of Indian Standards is a statutory body in India responsible for the formulation and implementation of standards to ensure the quality and safety of various products. Under the BIS framework, there exists a scheme called CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme), which mandates that certain categories of products must undergo mandatory registration and comply with specified quality and safety standards before they can be sold in the Indian market. This scheme was established in 2012 and has since played a crucial role in enhancing product quality and safety in India by ensuring that items such as electronics, appliances and automotive components meet the necessary standards before they reach consumers. BIS/CRS Registration is vital for market access, as it is a legal requirement for selling the product in India. Failure to obtain this registration can result in confiscation of goods and legal consequences. Therefore, manufacturers and importers need to be diligent in ensuring their products meet the necessary criteria.
