ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Aluminum ingots billets and wire bars (EC GRADE)

IS Standard : IS 4026:2023

High-purity aluminum goods are known as aluminum ingots, billets, and wire bars, particularly of EC grade. These products are mostly utilized in the electrical sector to produce conductors, cables, and wires. These materials are ideal for situations where the least amount of electrical resistance is crucial because of their remarkable electrical conductivity and purity.

Aluminum Ingots: During the main aluminum manufacturing process, which usually entails the reduction of aluminum oxide (alumina) by an electrolytic process known as electrolysis, enormous blocks or forms of aluminum metal are created. With an average aluminum composition of more than 99.7%, EC-grade aluminum ingots are renowned for their exceptional purity.

Aluminum Billets: Casting the molten metal into square or cylindrical forms after it has melted from aluminum ingots produces these semi-finished goods. Aluminum billets of EC grade are extremely refined and contain very little impurities, such as silicon, iron, and other elements.

Aluminum Wire Bars: High-purity aluminum ingots or billets are used to make aluminum wire bars. They are made especially for use in cables and electrical conductors, where it is necessary for them to have a high electrical conductivity. Low electrical resistance is a defining characteristic of EC-grade aluminum wire bars, guaranteeing effective electrical current transfer.

For producers in the aluminum business, the IS Standard IS 4026:2023 for aluminum ingots, billets, and wire bars (EC GRADE) is very important. Adherence to this standard guarantees that aluminum products more especially, billets, wire bars, and ingots meet strict quality standards. Aluminum produced by producers that follow IS 4026:2023 is renowned for its purity, uniformity, and performance qualities.

Note: It is required for manufacturers of aluminum ingots, billets, and wire bars (EC GRADE) to get the ISI Mark Certification.

ISI Certification serves as an essential step to guarantee that aluminum products adhere to rigorous technical standards, safety regulations and quality criteria, ultimately contributing to the reliability and performance of the products and systems in which aluminum is utilized. It provides assurance to industries such as electrical equipment manufacturing, automotive and aerospace that the aluminum they incorporate into their processes and products is of the highest quality, ensuring the efficiency and longevity of their applications.


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.


Documents Required for ISI / BIS Certification

The following documentation is required to get an ISI certification:

  • Main Application Form V
  • Address Proof of Manufacturing Unit
  • Details of Manufacturing Process
  • Test Report of products

Process of ISI / BIS Certification

There are two approaches for Indian manufacturers to become certified with the ISI Mark:

  • Regular Procedure
  • Simplified Procedure 


Regular Procedure

With the possible exception of cases deemed "All India first," which might take up to 180 days, the licensing procedure is expected to be finished in 120 days. This timeline starts on the day the application is received, assuming that at different points in time the documentation, unit assessment, and product conformance are all deemed acceptable.

Step 1: Manufacturing Unit Customization in Compliance with Applicable Indian Standards

  • Identifying the applicable Indian Standard
  • Establishing in-house testing facilities as per the Standard's requirements

Step 2: Submission of the Application Form

  • Preparing an Internal Test Report for the product by the relevant Indian Standard
  • Compiling all necessary documents
  • Completing the Online Application Form
  • Online payment of application fees directly to BIS
  • Submitting hard copies of the Application Form with all enclosures to the relevant Branch Office (BO) of BIS

Simplified Procedure

This is a much faster process than the standard procedure. After a factory inspection is deemed satisfactory and the initial evaluation establishes that the sample complies with the applicable Indian Standard(s), the license application process is expected to be finished in 30 days.

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

ISI Mark Certification Process for Foreign Manufacturers

The process of obtaining ISI Mark Certification for Foreign Manufacturers typically includes the following steps:

Step 1: Application

  • Compile all the required documents.
  • Submit the documents along with the Application Fee.
  • An Application Number will be allotted.
  • Scrutiny of the Application will be conducted within a specified time frame.​

Step 2: Query Raised (If Any)
