Coconut Fatty Acids

IS Standard : IS 12069:1987

Coconut fatty acids are a group of fatty acids derived from coconut oil, a versatile and widely used vegetable oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts. These fatty acids are obtained through processes such as cold pressing or solvent extraction of dried coconut kernels. Coconut fatty acids find extensive applications in various industries, including food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and household products. In the food industry, they are utilized as ingredients in cooking oils, margarines, and confectionery products due to their stability and flavor. Coconut fatty acids are valued in the cosmetics industry for their moisturizing and emollient properties, making them common ingredients in skincare products such as lotions, creams, and soaps. Moreover, these fatty acids serve as raw materials for the production of surfactants, detergents, and lubricants due to their excellent cleansing and foaming properties. Despite their saturated nature, coconut fatty acids are recognized for their potential health benefits, including raising levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and boosting metabolism when consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.

IS 12069:1987 stands as a cornerstone standard for Coconut Fatty Acids, ensuring their quality, safety, and reliability across various industrial applications. This standard provides comprehensive guidelines and specifications for manufacturers, covering critical aspects such as chemical composition, purity levels, and manufacturing processes. By setting clear parameters for factors like acid value, moisture content, and impurity limits, IS 12069:1987 ensures that Coconut Fatty Acids meet stringent standards for consistency and suitability in diverse industrial processes, including soap manufacturing, cosmetics production, and food processing. Compliance with this standard fosters consumer trust and enhances the efficiency and reliability of Coconut Fatty Acids in various industrial applications. This standard encourages innovation and technological advancement in Coconut Fatty Acid production by providing a reliable framework for quality assurance and continuous improvement.

Note: Obtaining the ISI/BIS Certification is a mandatory requirement for manufacturers of coconut fatty acids to sell their products in the Indian market.

In order to legally sell coconut fatty acids in India, manufacturers are required to obtain ISI/BIS certification as mandated by Indian regulations. This certification is essential as it ensures compliance with specific quality and safety standards set by the BIS for the production and distribution of coconut fatty acids. Without the ISI/BIS certification, manufacturers risk facing legal consequences and encountering barriers to accessing the Indian market. Securing this certification is not only a regulatory obligation but also a crucial step for manufacturers to demonstrate the reliability, compliance, and quality of their coconut fatty acids. This certification process underscores the importance of ensuring the integrity and safety of coconut fatty acids, thereby instilling confidence among stakeholders in the chemical industry regarding its suitability and adherence to 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.

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
