ISI / BIS Certification for Asbestos Cement Pressure Pipes (Light Duty)

BIS Certificate for Asbestos Cement Pressure Pipes (Light Duty)
ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Asbestos Cement Pressure Pipes (Light Duty)

IS Standard : IS 9627:1980

Asbestos cement pressure pipes, specifically designed for light-duty applications, are durable and cost-effective piping systems used primarily for water supply and distribution networks in residential and small-scale industrial settings. Composed of a mixture of asbestos fibres and cement, these pipes offer sufficient strength and corrosion resistance to withstand moderate internal pressures and external loads. Light-duty asbestos cement pressure pipes are lightweight and easy to handle, making them convenient for installation in shallow trenches or aboveground applications. They provide reliable performance in conveying potable water, irrigation water, and other non-corrosive fluids, contributing to the efficient and sustainable supply of water in communities. However, the use of asbestos in these pipes has raised concerns regarding potential health risks associated with asbestos exposure, leading to regulations and restrictions on their use and disposal in many countries.

IS 9627:1980 is crucial in regulating the quality and reliability of light-duty asbestos cement pressure pipes, which are extensively used in water supply and irrigation systems. This standard serves as a crucial guideline for manufacturers, outlining specific requirements for raw materials, manufacturing processes, dimensions, and mechanical properties. Adhering to IS 9627:1980 ensures that manufacturers produce pipes meeting rigorous quality standards, guaranteeing their ability to withstand moderate pressure levels while ensuring the safe and efficient conveyance of water. Compliance with this standard also helps mitigate health risks associated with asbestos exposure by regulating asbestos content and ensuring the absence of defects that could compromise the integrity of the water supply system or pose risks to public health. IS 9627:1980 promotes consistency and uniformity in the production of light-duty asbestos cement pressure pipes, facilitating their integration into water supply networks seamlessly.

Note: Obtaining the ISI/BIS Certification is a mandatory requirement for manufacturers of Asbestos Cement Pressure Pipes (Light Duty) to sell their products in the Indian market.

In India, manufacturers must obtain ISI/BIS certification for their Asbestos Cement Pressure Pipes (Light Duty) to legally sell these products. This certification, mandated by Indian regulations, ensures compliance with specific quality and safety standards set by the BIS for the production and distribution of asbestos cement pressure pipes designed for light-duty applications. Without this certification, manufacturers face legal consequences and barriers in accessing the Indian market. Therefore, obtaining ISI/BIS certification is not only a regulatory requirement but also a critical step for manufacturers to demonstrate the reliability, durability, and safety of their asbestos cement pressure pipes for light-duty purposes. This certification process underscores the importance of ensuring the integrity and suitability of construction materials, instilling confidence among stakeholders in the infrastructure and construction sectors regarding its compliance with Indian standards for usage and distribution.


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

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.​
