ISI / BIS Certification for Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acids

BIS Certificate for  Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acids
ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acids

IS Standard : IS 12361:1988

Hydrogenated rice bran fatty acids are a derivative of rice bran oil, which is extracted from the outer layer of rice grains. These fatty acids find applications in the food industry as ingredients in margarine, shortenings, and confectionery products due to their solid consistency at room temperature and their ability to enhance the texture, mouthfeel, and shelf life of food products. They are used in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries for their emollient properties and as bases for ointments and creams. Despite the hydrogenation process altering the fatty acid composition, hydrogenated rice bran fatty acids still retain some of the nutritional benefits associated with rice bran oil, such as being rich in antioxidants and beneficial fatty acids. However, like other hydrogenated fats, they may contain trans fats, which have been linked to adverse health effects and thus should be consumed in moderation.

IS 12361:1988 is pivotal in ensuring the quality, safety, and reliability of Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acids across various industrial applications. This standard provides comprehensive guidelines and specifications for manufacturers, covering essential 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 12361:1988 ensures that Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acids meet stringent standards for consistency and suitability in diverse industrial processes, including cosmetics production, food processing, and pharmaceuticals. Adherence to IS 12361:1988 promotes regulatory compliance and contributes to the overall competitiveness of industries relying on Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acids by ensuring standardized production practices and facilitating market acceptance of Hydrogenated Rice Bran Fatty Acid products.

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

In India, manufacturers are mandated to obtain ISI/BIS certification for their hydrogenated rice bran fatty acids to sell and distribute these products within the country. This certification serves as a crucial indicator of compliance with specific quality and safety standards mandated by the BIS for the production and commercialization of hydrogenated rice bran fatty acids. Without the required ISI/BIS certification, manufacturers risk facing legal penalties and encountering barriers to accessing the Indian market. This certification is not only a regulatory necessity but also a pivotal step for manufacturers to showcase the reliability, compliance, and quality of their hydrogenated rice bran fatty acids. This certification process underscores the significance of ensuring the integrity and safety of hydrogenated rice bran fatty acids, 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.


Documents Required for ISI / BIS Certification

The following documentation is required to get an ISI certification:

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
