A digital camera is a technological marvel that has revolutionized the world of photography. Unlike traditional film cameras, digital cameras capture and store images electronically, enabling immediate viewing and easy transfer of photos to computers or other devices. Digital cameras have made photography more accessible, allowing users to take countless photos without the cost and delay of film processing. They offer versatile settings, including adjustable ISO, shutter speed, and aperture, providing creative control and the ability to adapt to diverse lighting conditions.
The era of digital photography has also popularized features like image stabilization, face detection, and high-definition video recording, making digital cameras tools for capturing memories and versatile devices for creative expression. With advancements in sensor technology and image processing, digital cameras continue to push the boundaries of image quality and performance, solidifying their role as indispensable companions for both amateur and professional photographers.
IS 13252 (Part 1): 2010 is an Indian Standard that outlines safety requirements for digital cameras. These standards ensure that digital cameras are designed and manufactured safely. IS 13252 (Part 1): 2010 reduces the risk of accidents, such as electric shocks, battery-related incidents, and fire hazards, ensuring the safety of users. Manufacturers need to comply with these standards to meet regulatory requirements and ensure their products are legally compliant and safe for consumers.
Note: Manufacturers of digital cameras are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration ensures that these imaging devices meet specific quality and safety standards mandated by the Bureau of Indian Standards. The objective of this mandatory registration is to verify that digital cameras are designed, manufactured, and marketed in adherence to stringent quality and safety requirements. This registration is instrumental in guaranteeing the quality and safety of digital cameras available in the Indian market, providing consumers with the confidence that these devices are free from potential defects and pose no risks to users.
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.
