In April 2021, the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, India, published a notification related to the BIS certification of 13 new chemicals.

These chemicals are newly added to the BIS Mandatory Certification list, indicating that manufacturers or importers who place these chemicals in the Indian market would need to comply with BIS and receive a BIS registration certificate before initiating the business. This requirement applies to both Indian and foreign manufacturers. The order comes into force after 180 days of its publication in the Official Gazette.
