IS Standard : IS 2373:1981

Fibre reinforced cement products, such as long corrugated or asymmetrical section sheets and fittings, are innovative building materials engineered for roofing and cladding applications. These products combine the strength and durability of cement with the reinforcing properties of fibres, generally cellulose or glass, to create robust and versatile construction components. Long corrugated or asymmetrical section sheets offer enhanced structural stability and weather resistance, making them suitable for use in a wide range of architectural designs and environmental conditions. These fibre reinforced cement products provide reliable protection against harsh weather elements, UV radiation, and pests while offering excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. With their durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal, fibre reinforced cement sheets and fittings continue to be popular choices for roofing and cladding solutions in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.

IS 14871:2000 is a crucial Indian Standard in regulating the quality and safety of fibre reinforced cement products, specifically long corrugated or asymmetrical section sheets and fittings used for roofing and cladding in construction. This standard provides essential guidelines for manufacturers, outlining specific requirements for raw materials, manufacturing processes, dimensions, and physical properties. Adhering to IS 14871:2000 ensures that manufacturers produce products meeting stringent quality standards, guaranteeing their durability, stability, and reliability in various building applications. Compliance with this standard also helps mitigate health risks associated with fibre cement products by regulating material composition and ensuring the absence of defects that could compromise structural integrity or pose hazards during installation or use. IS 14871:2000 promotes consistency and uniformity in the production of fibre reinforced cement products, facilitating their seamless integration into construction projects while ensuring compatibility and reliability.

Note: Obtaining the ISI/BIS Certification is a mandatory requirement for manufacturers of Fibre Reinforced Cement Products – Long Corrugated or Asymmetrical Section Sheets and Fittings for Roofing and Cladding to sell their products in the Indian market.

Manufacturers must secure ISI/BIS certification for their Fibre Reinforced Cement Products, specifically Long Corrugated or Asymmetrical Section Sheets and Fittings used for roofing and cladding, to legally sell these items in India. This certification, mandated by Indian regulations, ensures compliance with stringent quality and safety standards set by the BIS for the production and distribution of fibre reinforced cement products. Without this certification, manufacturers encounter legal consequences and barriers to accessing the Indian market. Obtaining ISI/BIS certification is not only a regulatory obligation but also a crucial step for manufacturers to affirm the reliability, durability, and safety of their fibre reinforced cement sheets and fittings for roofing and cladding applications. This certification process underscores the significance of ensuring the integrity and suitability of construction materials, instilling confidence among stakeholders in the construction and building industries regarding its 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.

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
