Geogrids for flexible pavements

IS Standard : IS 17371:2020

As a reinforcing layer that improves the road's or pavement's structural integrity and performance, geogrids are essential to the design of flexible pavements. The purpose of these grid-like materials, which are usually composed of fiberglass or high-strength polymers, is to better distribute and regulate the load-bearing stresses within the pavement layers. Geogrids function in flexible pavements by strengthening the pavement layers' tensile strength and modulus of elasticity. The pavement becomes more robust and more capable of distributing loads with the addition of geogrid reinforcement, which lessens rutting, cracking, and deformation brought on by stresses generated by traffic. Improved structural performance, lower maintenance costs, and longer pavement life are just a few advantages of using geogrids in flexible pavements.

The Indian Standard IS 17371:2020 lays forth specifications for geogrids used in flexible pavements. The standard lays forth a number of technical specifications for the planning, building, and functionality of geogrids for flexible pavements. Geogrids used in pavement construction are legally required to comply with recognized standards such as IS 17371:2020. Producers that follow these guidelines make sure their goods meet legal requirements, which lowers the possibility of legal problems and liabilities.

Note: The necessary ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by manufacturers of geogrids for flexible pavements.

In order to guarantee the dependability, effectiveness, and longevity of geogrid materials—which are essential for supporting and strengthening the layers of flexible pavement systems—ISI certification is an essential quality assurance method. This certifies that the geogrids have undergone extensive testing and meet the strict standards established by the BIS. These standards are especially designed to assess the geogrids' strength, durability, and appropriateness for use in reinforcing pavement systems. This certification guarantees that the geogrid materials are made and engineered to distribute loads efficiently, enhance the overall longevity of flexible pavements, and improve pavement performance.


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
  • Address Proof of Manufacturing Unit
  • Details of Manufacturing Process
  • Test Report of products

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.​

Step 2: Query Raised (If Any)

  • If any documents are missing or there is non-compliance, you will be informed.
  • You need to submit a reply within the given timeframe.
