ISI / BIS Certification is mandatory for

Shoe covers

IS Standard : IS 17349 : 2020

Shoe covers are made to be worn over conventional shoes or footwear. They may be thrown away or reused. Most of them are disposable for one-time use and are usually made to be simple to put on and take off. The protective function of the shoe cover extends the life of shoes, maintaining their visual appeal, and strengthening the resilience of pricey shoes. Because they are made of materials that are resistant to water, they are shielded from inclement weather including rain, dirt, and snow. The shoe coverings also include non-slip soles to lessen the possibility of unintentional slips. 

Shoes with coverings are essential for preserving hygienic conditions, safety, and cleanliness in a variety of contexts, including ordinary living spaces, construction sites, and medical institutions. They are a sensible and efficient way to guarantee a clean atmosphere and avoid pollution. 

There are several materials for shoe coverings, such as plastic, polypropylene, and non-woven textiles.

The rising awareness of safety and cleanliness in a variety of sectors has led to a notable development of the worldwide shoe cover market in recent years. The requirement to maintain sanitary standards in the food sector is driving the growth of the shoe coverings market. Moreover, throughout the projected period, a rising demand for shoe covers from hospitals and the industrial sector is anticipated to provide new market possibilities. 

Under IS 17349: 2020, all shoe coverings are now part of the required ISI Certification Scheme. 

In order to prevent the spread of germs, particles, pollutants, and other contaminants to patients or materials during various medical operations, this standard specifies the criteria for disposable and reusable shoe coverings.

The requirement for leggings or bootleggings used in operating rooms is not covered by 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.
