An example of an engineered wood product is veneered decorative plywood, which combines the visual appeal of decorative veneer with the strength and stability of plywood. It is extensively utilized in areas including as interior design, architecture, cabinetry, and furniture manufacturing where both aesthetic appeal and structural integrity are crucial. The decorative veneer that is added to the plywood core's surface is the primary characteristic of veneered decorative plywood. Typically, premium wood species recognized for their eye-catching hues and grain patterns are used to make this veneer. In order to achieve symmetrical designs and aesthetically acceptable patterns on larger surfaces, veneer matching techniques are frequently included into veneered ornamental plywood.

For producers in the plywood sector, the IS Standard IS 1328:1996 for Veneered Decorative Plywood is crucial. Specific quality requirements and specifications are outlined in IS 1328:1996 for veneered ornamental plywood. Producers who follow these guidelines are dedicated to delivering superior plywood goods that fulfill or beyond the required specifications. Plywood sheets are appropriate for load-bearing and structural applications when they comply with this standard, which guarantees the structural integrity of the material.

Note: The obligatory ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by manufacturers of veneered decorative plywood.

In the end, ISI Certification contributes to the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of interior spaces and furnishings by ensuring that these plywood products meet strict safety requirements, technical standards, and quality standards. It provides reassurance that the veneered ornamental plywood they use in their projects is of the best quality, guaranteeing the aesthetic appeal and longevity of interior spaces and furnishings for designers, architects, furniture producers, and homeowners.


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.
