Boric Acid-Specification

IS Standard : IS 10116: 2015

Hydrogen borate, or orthoboric acid, is another name for boric acid, which is a chemical molecule having the formula H3BO3. It is a weak, colorless, odorless chemical that occurs naturally and contains the element boron. Boric acid can be found as colorless crystals that dissolve in water or as white powder. It is noteworthy for having antifungal and antibacterial qualities. A substance having many uses in industrial, agriculture, medical, and domestic applications is boric acid. It is widely used in many different applications, including as a flame retardant, antiseptic, pesticide, neutron absorber, and precursor to other boron compounds.

Because boric acid is used in fiberglass, ceramics, wood preservatives, dietary supplements, and pest control, its demand has surged globally. By reducing the melting point, improving heat resistance, and bolstering mechanical strength, boric acid is added to glass compositions. It also increases the material's resistance to chemicals and watery environments, which raises the need for boric acid. The market for boric acid was estimated to be worth USD 605 million globally as of 2022. It is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.2% over the course of the projection period, reaching USD 940 million by 2032.

Boric acid requirements are important because they guarantee the product's quality, safety, and compatibility for a range of uses. It is essential to follow certain quality criteria to guarantee that boric acid performs as intended in each application in a safe and efficient manner. Manufacturers and consumers may maximize the advantages of boric acid while lowering hazards and guaranteeing consistent outcomes by adhering to the proper standards. 

The obligatory ISI Certification Scheme under IS standard IS 10116: 2015 now includes all boric acid parameters.

This standard describes the requirements for boric acid in several applications, along with sampling and testing procedures. Capacitors, electronics, nuclear energy, foundries, fire-resistant work clothes, glass and ceramics, explosives, refractories, paints, chemicals, dye intermediates, electroplating, leather processing, adhesives, and enamel are just a few of the industries for which these applications are used. Specific criteria are covered by these standards for all of these purposes, with the exception of the cosmetics business.

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.

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
