ISI / BIS Certification for Ether

BIS Certification for  Ether IS 336 - By Brand Liaison
ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for


IS Standard : IS 336:2021

A family of organic molecules known as ethers is distinguished by its distinct chemical structure, which consists of two aryl or alkyl groups joined by an oxygen atom. At room temperature, they are usually combustible when subjected to high pressure. An oxygen atom (O) is joined to either two carbon atoms (C) or one carbon and one hydrogen atom (H) to form the chemical structure of ethers. For simple ethers, the usual formula is R-O-R', where R and R' stand for aryl or alkyl groups, respectively. Simple ethers and crown ethers are the two primary types into which ethers fall. Crown ethers have a cyclic structure with oxygen atoms creating a ring, whereas simple ethers contain two alkyl or aryl groups connected to the oxygen atom.

Ethers are used as flavorings and colorants in the paint and pharmaceutical sectors. They provide flavor to a variety of foods and pharmaceuticals, such as fruit-based foods, sweets, yoghurts, ice creams, and chewing gum applied to prescription formulations. Furthermore, because some ethers have sedative qualities, they are employed in the anesthetic industry. Some common ether compounds, such diethyl and dimethyl ether, are used as solvents and also have pleasant scents that improve the color and taste of paintings, medications, and other products. They are also used in perfumery.  

Ethers are distinguished by their distinct smell, which varies based on the particular substance. Ethers are useful in many chemical and industrial applications, but because they are flammable and can be harmful to your health if not used correctly, you should handle them carefully.

According to IS standard IS 336:2021, every ether is now covered by the required ISI Certification Scheme.

The criteria and methods for testing and sampling ethers are described in 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.

  • 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
