Storage battery, also known as a solar storage battery, serves a crucial role by providing electrical power even when sunlight is unavailable. The term "storage" pertains to systems capable of capturing electricity, converting it into another form of energy (chemical, thermal, or mechanical) and releasing it when necessary. One notable advantage of combining solar and storage technologies is their ability to offer backup power during electrical outages. To elucidate, solar panels harness solar energy and convert it into electricity. A solar storage battery is a system charged by an associated solar setup, such as photovoltaic panels.
IS 16270: 2014 is an important standard for manufacturers of storage batteries. Manufacturers who adhere to these standards can produce dependable and durable batteries. Adherence to safety standards is essential to prevent accidents and ensure the well-being of those working with or around these batteries. According to the Government of India, manufacturers are prohibited from producing, storing, importing, or distributing products that do not adhere to the Indian Standard IS 16270: 2014.
Note: Manufacturers of storage batteries are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration for storage batteries ensures that these products conform to stringent quality and safety standards defined by the Bureau of Indian Standards. This mandatory registration is essential to guarantee the performance, reliability and safety of storage batteries in diverse applications, safeguarding consumer interests and promoting the growth of industries dependent on these devices. This certification process involves rigorous testing and evaluation to confirm compliance with established standards.
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.
