ISI / BIS Certification for Linear Alkyl Benzene

BIS Certification for Linear Alkyl Benzene  IS 12795 - By Brand Liaison
ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Linear Alkyl Benzene

IS Standard : IS 12795:2020

An organic chemical compound known as linear alkyl benzoene (LAB) is made up of a benzene ring and a linear alkyl chain. It is an essential component of many detergents, particularly those that are liquid and allow for efficient cleaning and washing. It is also applied as a pesticide in agriculture and as an emulsifying agent in polymerization operations. In addition to being employed in detergents, LAB is also utilized in the production of phenols and sulfonates, among other chemical intermediates. These intermediaries are essential to the manufacturing of rubber, plastics, and synthetic resins.

The main source of demand for linear alkyl benzene (LAB) is its usage as an essential step in the synthesis of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS), an anionic detergent and essential surfactant. Additionally, the market is expanding as a result of the growing use of biodegradable linear alkylbenzene sulfonic acid in place of dodecylbenzene in dishwashing solutions, laundry detergents, and industrial cleaners. The usage of detergents obtained from lab animals is in line with the growing demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly cleaning products.

The market for linear alkyl benzene (LAB) was estimated to be worth USD 9.57 billion globally in 2022. By 2032, it is predicted to reach USD 13.39 billion, growing at a projected cumulative annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8%.

According to IS standard IS 12795:2020, all linear alkyl benzene is now covered by the required ISI Certification Scheme. 

The requirements and procedures for sampling and testing for linear alkyl benzene are described in this standard. The substance ought to be a colorless, transparent liquid with a distinct smell. The content also has to follow the standards specified in this standard. The appropriate standards must be followed when carrying out testing procedures.

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.

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
