Water-proof multipurpose rain poncho

IS Standard : IS 17286 : 2019

An adaptable and essential item of outdoor clothing, a waterproof multifunctional rain poncho is made to keep people dry and safe in bad weather. In order to prevent rainfall from penetrating the fabric, these ponchos are usually constructed from waterproof materials like PVC, nylon, or polyester with a waterproof coating. They may be used for a multitude of purposes due to their roomy size and construction, such as protecting the wearer from intense rain or covering equipment like backpacks. These multipurpose, lightweight, and portable ponchos provide protection and comfort throughout erratic weather, making them the perfect partners for outdoor pursuits like hiking, camping, festivals, and travel.

The Indian Standard IS 17286:2019 lays forth specifications for rain ponchos that are both waterproof and multifunctional. In order to minimize the possibility of consumers being cold or wet during a downpour, producers can create rain ponchos that satisfy strict safety and quality standards by adhering to IS 17286:2019. Manufacturers who follow these guidelines create ponchos that are long-lasting and dependable for a considerable amount of time. Manufacturers may improve their image and boost customer satisfaction by establishing trust with consumers via adherence to accepted standards.

Note: The necessary ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by manufacturers of waterproof multifunctional rain ponchos.

The ISI certification is an important quality control method that guarantees the performance, longevity, and safety of these adaptable rainwear products, which are necessary for shielding people from rain and bad weather. It means that these rain ponchos have passed rigorous testing and meet the strict standards established by the BIS. These standards are designed to assess the rain ponchos' ability to repel water, the quality of their materials, and their general structure. This accreditation guarantees that the rain ponchos are made and engineered to successfully repel water, keeping users dry in wet and unfavorable weather.


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.
