Standards for 5000 imported items

Today in news there is talk about commerce ministry asking bis to make standards for 5000 products that are being imported. Bis just has regulations for 500.

Why is it so slow to engage with industry experts and even general public. If they operate at this pace soon the standards body will be redundant and we will just be adopting global standards (which we may be doing anyways despite having BIS)

Get active please BIS!! more

The Bureau of Indian Standards (erstwhile Indian Standards Institution (ISI)) was established in year 1947, with the objective of harmonious development of standardization activity in India. Under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act, 2016, Bureau establishes Indian Standards in relation to any article or process and amends, revises or cancels the standards so established as may be necessary, by a process of consultation involving consumers, manufacturers, Government and regulatory bodies, technologists, scientists and testing laboratories through duly constituted committees.
To meet the present requirement, the defination of Bureau of Indian Standards has to be amended. more  
The standards which BIS should not be a copy of any international std but should be suitable to our conditions and tropical climate and also our culture keeping in mind and not just copy an international std more  
Let Indian industry make the standards, such that local industry get a boost as against imported items.
Foreign standards, made by developed countries , are anti developing countries.
One MNC in India prescribed two fertilizers, Menab & Zenab, to be sprayed on soil.
MNC prescribed zero Zinc in Menab (manganese salt) AND zero Manganese in Zenab ( zinc salt).
What is the sense ? You accept Zinc and Manganese salt as fertilizers for soil but prescribe zero of each into other !! Both are useful to soil.
As a result of such stupid specifications, I lost an international tender and the MNC got it.
The MNC specifications were accepted by buyer only because buyer was financed by IMF more
