  • Presently, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are obligated to send new electronic devices like mobile phones, laptops, TVs, or headphones to BIS-certified labs
  • By implementing parallel testing, BIS can concurrently examine all components instead of the current sequential testing procedure

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has permitted all 64 products under electronics and IT goods for parallel testing, which includes mobile phones, wireless earphones, headphones, laptops, notebooks, and tablets etc. BIS has mentioned that all product categories under the Electronics and IT Goods (Requirements of Compulsory Registration Order), 2021, are now eligible for parallel testing.

Currently, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must send new electronic devices like mobile phones, laptops, TVs, or headphones to BIS-certified labs for assessment to verify compliance with Indian safety norms. This evaluation typically consumes four to six weeks per product. BIS can concurrently examine all components by implementing parallel testing instead of the current sequential testing procedure.

“Under parallel testing, the lab will test the first component and issue test report. This test report number along with the name of the lab will be mentioned in the test report of the second component. This procedure will be followed for subsequent components and final product also,” BIS said in a recent notification on the subject.

Initially, during the trial run in September 2022 this parallel testing was only allowed for mobile phones, but later it has been extended to wireless earphones, headphones, laptops, notebooks, and tablets.
