ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Maleic Anhydride, Technical

IS Standard : IS 5149:2020

Maleic anhydride has the chemical formula C4H2O3. It is an organic molecule. At room temperature, it takes the form of a white, crystalline solid and is an acid anhydride of maleic acid. The liquid form of maleic anhydride is clear and has an unpleasant smell. It shows good water solubility. In the chemical industry, maleic anhydride is frequently employed as a flexible intermediary for the production of many chemicals and polymers. The production of 1,4-butanediol, agricultural chemicals, and unsaturated polyester resins are a few of its typical uses. It also acts as an essential component in the creation of adhesives, coatings, and other chemical goods. 

Maleic anhydride's unusual characteristics and versatility make it a valuable ingredient in many industrial applications, especially in its technical grade. It supports the creation of cutting-edge materials, the improvement of product performance, and the streamlining of industrial procedures.

Maleic anhydride's need in the production of paper and textiles has propelled the market's significant expansion. Its importance in the chemical industry has been aided by its adaptability in chemical processes and ability to produce a wide range of necessary products.

Under IS standard IS 5149:2020, every maleic anhydride technology has been incorporated in the required ISI Certification Scheme.

The technical requirements and procedures for testing and sampling maleic anhydride that are appropriate for industrial use 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.

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
