Bureau of Indian Standards (‘BIS’) is a regulatory body operating under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Government of India. The purpose of establishing this regulatory body was for the development of activities pertaining to standardisation, marking and quality certification of goods. BIS is involved in various activities including but not limited to standards formulation, certification of products, hallmarking, testing and more.

The objective of BIS is to ensure that goods consumed by the consumers are safe, reliable and of a prescribed standard which will assist in reducing the health hazards on the consumers consuming such goods, control over proliferation of varieties etc. This is achieved post proper testing and inspection as per prescribed BIS standards which have been formulated for each product. The licence is granted for the products which conform to the prescribed standards.
