Television sets, often called TVs, are ubiquitous electronic devices that have been a cornerstone of entertainment and information dissemination for decades. These devices are designed to receive broadcast signals, cable, or digital inputs and display moving images and sound on a screen. TV technology has evolved considerably, transitioning from traditional cathode ray tube (CRT) sets to more modern and sleek flat-panel displays, including LCD, LED, OLED, and QLED. With a wide range of screen sizes and resolutions, televisions offer a diverse viewing experience, from high-definition to 4K and beyond.
Today's TVs are equipped with smart features, allowing users to stream content from the internet, access apps, and even control other smart home devices. As a focal point of entertainment in homes worldwide, television sets continue to adapt to technological advancements, offering a window to the world and a gateway to a wide array of content and interactive experiences.
IS 18112:2022 is an Indian Standard that provides requirements and specifications for television sets. They cover various aspects, including electrical safety, protection against electric shock, fire hazards, and other potential risks. Compliance with these standards reduces the risk of accidents and hazards, ensuring the safety of users. Manufacturers are required to comply with these standards to meet regulatory requirements and ensure their products are legally compliant and safe for consumers.
Note: Manufacturers of television sets are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration is a mandatory requirement for television sets. This scheme was introduced to ensure that television sets sold in India meet specific safety, quality, and performance standards defined by the Bureau of Indian Standards. This compulsory registration enhances consumer protection and promotes the availability of reliable and safe television sets in the Indian market. It contributes to the overall quality and safety of television products, addressing issues related to electrical safety, energy efficiency, and other vital parameters.
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.
