Bed sheet and Pillow Cover

IS Standard : IS 17630 : 2021

In addition to being crucial parts of bedding, bed sheets also contribute significantly to a bed's comfort, protection, and visual appeal. They serve as a comfortable resting surface, safeguard the mattress, and improve the general quality of sleep.

Pillow covers are fabric covers intended to provide protection for pillows. They perform a number of crucial tasks and are necessary to keep pillows comfortable, clean, and long-lasting. Changing and cleaning pillowcases on a regular basis will help you sleep better and feel more comfortable.

A cozy, tidy, and visually pleasant sleeping environment in the bedroom is largely dependent on the quality of the bed linens and pillowcases. The bed sheets and pillowcases that you choose for your sleeping space are crucial, and their selection may greatly affect your quality of sleep and general wellbeing.

A number of variables, such as customer tastes, prevailing economic situations, shifting lifestyles, and seasonal fluctuations, affect the demand for bed sheets and pillowcases.

Under IS 17630: 2021, all bed linens and pillowcases are required to be part of the ISI Certification Scheme. 

This standard specifies the requirements for sets of bedsheets and pillowcases meant for medical use, regardless of whether they are disposable or reusable. Depending on what the buyer and seller agree upon, the bedsheet and pillowcase sets may be supplied in a sterile or non-sterile state.

The general look, texture, color, and other characteristics of the pillowcase and bedsheet are not specified by 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.
