On the 13th of May 2022, the Central Government of India extended the enforcement date for three substances under the Quality Control Order (QCO).
The Quality Control Order is the regulation that requires concerned substances/chemicals to carry the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification mark. This mark certifies the substance/product’s quality and safety to the end-users and environment.
For this new extension, the concerned chemicals and their new dates are Methylene Chloride (November 20, 2022), Ortho Phosphoric Acid (December 10, 2022) and Polyphosphoric Acid (December 22, 2022). The delays, according to the DCPC, are due to a backlog of outstanding QCOs caused by COVID-related staff shortages and travel limitations, which have resulted in delays in inspections, sampling, testing, and certification of substances and goods.
There are about 52 chemicals in total, under the BIS mandatory certification scheme.
