Medium density fibre boards for general purpose

IS Standard : IS 12406:2021

Medium-density fiberboard (MDF) is a common option for general-purpose manufacturing and construction since it is an engineered wood product with a wide variety of uses and versatility. One of MDF's main benefits is that it has a smooth surface and constant density, making it a great material for projects requiring consistency and accuracy, such interior trim, furniture, and cabinets. Additionally, MDF is very amenable to a wide range of treatments, such as paints, laminates, and veneers, enabling customisation with regard to look and style. Its resistance to warping, swelling, and splitting is a result of its uniform and dimensionally stable composition, which also increases its longevity and appropriateness for a wide range of applications.

For general-purpose medium-density fiberboards (MDF), producers in the furniture and woodworking sectors rely heavily on the IS Standard IS 12406:2021. MDF products are guaranteed to fulfill precise technical and quality criteria when they comply with IS 12406:2021. This aids producers in meeting consumer expectations for MDF boards by ensuring that they are dependable and consistent. Respecting the standards of the standard helps make these items more resilient and long-lasting while lowering the chance of early wear and tear. Manufacturers can limit their liability for product failures, accidents, or damage resulting from non-compliant items by adhering to set standards.

Note: The necessary ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by producers of medium-density fiberboards for general applications.

In order to guarantee that these medium-density fiberboards (MFD) meet strict quality standards, safety requirements, and technological standards, it is necessary for them to receive ISI Certification. This certification enhances the product and structure's dependability and performance. This accreditation highlights the manufacturer's persistent dedication to providing boards that not only meet but also surpass the strict quality and safety requirements established by the BIS.


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.

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

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
