Rice Bran Fatty Acids

IS Standard : IS 12068:1987

Rice bran fatty acids are a group of fatty acids obtained from the oil extracted from the bran layer of rice grains. The bran layer, which constitutes about 8-10% of the rice grain, contains a relatively high concentration of lipids, making it a valuable source of fatty acids. The extraction process involves solvent extraction or mechanical pressing to obtain rice bran oil, which is then further refined to isolate the fatty acids. Rice bran fatty acids are composed mainly of oleic acid, linoleic acid, and palmitic acid, with smaller amounts of other fatty acids. These fatty acids have various industrial applications, particularly in the production of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food supplements. Due to their high content of unsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic acid, rice bran fatty acids are valued for their potential health benefits, including cholesterol-lowering properties and antioxidant effects. They are also used in the manufacturing of soaps, detergents, and lubricants due to their emulsifying and lubricating properties. Rice bran fatty acids find applications in the production of biodiesel as a renewable and environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based fuels.

IS 12068:1987 is an essential standard for Rice Bran Fatty Acids, playing a crucial role in ensuring their quality, safety, and reliability in various industrial applications. This standard provides comprehensive guidelines and specifications for manufacturers, covering critical 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 12068:1987 ensures that Rice Bran Fatty Acids meet stringent standards for consistency and suitability in diverse industrial processes, including soap manufacturing, cosmetics production, and food processing. Compliance with this standard builds confidence among consumers and enhances the efficiency and reliability of Rice Bran Fatty Acids in various industrial applications.

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

In adherence to Indian regulations, manufacturers must obtain ISI/BIS certification for their rice bran fatty acids to distribute and market these products within the country. This certification serves as a critical indicator of compliance with specific quality and safety standards mandated by the BIS for the production and sale of rice bran fatty acids. Without the requisite ISI/BIS certification, manufacturers risk facing legal penalties and encountering obstacles in accessing the Indian market. Therefore, obtaining this certification is a regulatory necessity for manufacturers to showcase the reliability, compliance, and quality of their rice bran fatty acids. This certification process underscores the significance of ensuring the integrity and safety of 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:

  • Main Application Form V
  • Address Proof of Manufacturing Unit

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

ISI Mark Certification Process for Foreign Manufacturers

The process of obtaining ISI Mark Certification for Foreign Manufacturers typically includes the following steps:

Step 1: Application

  • Compile all the required documents.
  • Submit the documents along with the Application Fee.
  • An Application Number will be allotted.
  • Scrutiny of the Application will be conducted within a specified time frame.​
