Cotton bales are tightly compressed and bound masses of cotton fibres, usually wrapped in jute or plastic, making them easier to handle, transport, and store. Cotton, one of the world's most widely cultivated and important crops, is typically harvested in raw form as fluffy cotton lint from the cotton plant's bolls. The standardized bales ensure that the cotton remains protected from environmental factors, such as moisture and contaminants while simplifying logistics. Cotton bales are a critical intermediary product in the cotton industry, and they serve as the basis for the production of various cotton textiles, clothing, and industrial products.
IS 12171:2019 specifies the requirements for Cotton Bales. These standards define the quality parameters that Cotton Bales must meet, ensuring that the cotton is of high quality and consistent. They provide a clear classification system that helps cotton producers, traders, and textile manufacturers understand and trade cotton of various grades effectively. Manufacturers and traders must adhere to these standards to ensure that their cotton products are legal and compliant with industry regulations.
Note: Manufacturers of Cotton Bales are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration is a critical requirement for Cotton Bales, a fundamental agricultural product with extensive applications in textile manufacturing and various industries. This registration ensures that cotton bales conform to specific quality and safety standards, guaranteeing their fitness for intended uses. BIS certification for cotton bales is essential in upholding product quality and ensuring that consumers receive cotton of a defined standard. It plays a pivotal role in maintaining consistency and reliability within the cotton industry.
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.
