ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Needle punched non-woven geobags

IS Standard : IS 16653:2017

Specialized geosynthetic materials called needle-punched non-woven geo bags are applied in a range of environmental, building, and civil engineering contexts. The non-woven polypropylene fabric used to make these geo bags is needle-punched to provide a robust, long-lasting, and highly permeable material. For erosion prevention and slope stability, needle-punched non-woven geo bags are one of the main uses. They are intended to be strategically positioned in regions that are vulnerable to erosion, such as riverbanks, slopes, or shorelines, and filled with a variety of materials, such as soil, sand, gravel, or concrete. Because of its porous construction, which efficiently traps soil particles and let water to pass through, erosion and soil loss are prevented.

Due to their adaptability and versatility, these geo bags may be used for both large-scale environmental restoration projects and smaller-scale landscaping initiatives. In the domains of environmental protection and civil engineering, needle-punched non-woven geo bags are indispensable because to their strength, permeability, and simplicity of installation. Legal requirements for geobags used in environmental and civil engineering applications are outlined in IS 16653:2017. Producers that follow these guidelines make sure their goods meet legal requirements, which lowers the possibility of legal problems and liabilities. The standard lays forth a number of technical specifications for the layout, functionality, and performance of needle-punched non-woven geobags. Adherence to these guidelines assists producers in upholding quality control throughout their manufacturing procedures, diminishing discrepancies in the caliber of their output.


Note: It should be noted that producers of non-woven geo bags with needle punching need to get the ISI Mark Certification.

The ISI certification means that these geobags have passed strict testing and meet the BIS's strict standards, which are designed to assess the geobags' strength, durability, and appropriateness for geotechnical applications. This certification guarantees that the materials used to create the geo bags are made and built in a way that successfully stabilizes and contains soil, inhibits erosion, and promotes the development of plant. Engineers, contractors, and environmentalists rely on this symbol of quality and safety to guarantee the functionality and dependability of these geobags, which eventually contributes to the accomplishment and ecological responsibility of projects throughout India.


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
