BIS Certification for  Acrylonitrile IS 12540 - By Brand Liaison
ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for


IS Standard : IS 12540:2023

Acrylonitrile is a chemical molecule having the formula CH2CHCN. It is often referred to as vinyl cyanide or propenenitrile. It is a highly flammable, clear, colorless liquid with a strong, fruity smell. The versatile chemical acrylonitrile is used to create a wide range of synthetic materials and polymers, such as acrylic fibers, resins, and plastics. In addition, it plays a crucial role in the creation of synthetic rubber and other compounds, including adiponitrile, which is needed to create nylon-6,6. Acrylonitrile is also utilized in the synthesis of acrylamide, a flocculant used in water treatment and other industrial operations.

The need for synthetic fibers and resins, which are utilized in a variety of industries, including the textile and automotive industries, has an impact on the worldwide market for acrylonitrile. It is also utilized in the creation of carbon fiber, which is highly sought after due to its robustness and low weight, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries. Acrylonitrile's market is anticipated to expand in response to these commercial and industrial uses.

The global market for acrylonitrile was valued at over USD 11.95 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach USD 13.42 billion by 2031, growing at a compound yearly growth rate (CAGR) of almost 1.3% between 2023 and 2031. 

According to IS standard IS 12540:2023, every acrylonitrile is now covered by the required ISI Certification Scheme.

The acrylonitrile standards, sample methods, and testing protocols are described in this standard.

Without the ISI Mark, this product cannot be marketed, imported, or exported into the Indian consumer market.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.

Step 1: Adapting the Manufacturing Unit to Comply with the Relevant Indian Standard

  • Identifying the applicable Indian Standard
  • Establishing in-house testing facilities to meet the Standard's requirements

Step 2: Sample Testing

  • Obtaining the necessary certificate for raw materials (Material Test Certificate - MTC)
  • Conducting product sample testing at a BIS-recognized testing laboratory
