No more deadline extension for imported electronic items
1/4/2014 12:12:39 PM from THE HINDU

The Government has decided not to extend the deadline of safety certification of the imported electronic products. The last date for complying with the norm was January 3.

According to an earlier order, electronic companies were supposed to get 15 listed electronic and information technology goods registered with the Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS), for which it had extended the deadline twice last year.

The Government had extended earlier deadline to July 3 and then again for January 3.

The original deadline was of April 2013.

“It is a continuous process (registration) and whenever there is a new product there will be a backlog of registration then.

“Therefore, we have to close the deadline because otherwise, there will be a long queue of products at labs,” J. Satyanarayana, Secretary, the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), told Business Line.

Top 10 firms

There are top 10 companies (such as Samsung, LG, Sony and Lenovo) and there are 46 brands, which keep sending products for safety registration to BIS, and if those backlogs are not cleared, more applications would come.

“There were already a backlog of 100 products last week and another 20 have come till today.

“We are hoping to get them cleared soon,” he said, adding that companies that have already sent their applications earlier can keep sending their products for registration.

The 15 electronic products under the Compulsory Registration Order, including video games, microwave ovens, laptops, tablet computers, LCD television, telephone answering machines, electronic music systems and printers.

For better quality

On asked about the concern of the companies and the industry body Manufacturers’ Association for Information Technology (MAIT) who had been asking for the extension of deadline as BIS was not able to clear the applications on time, Satyanarayana said the processes are being improved to clear applications faster.

“The entire idea is to get better quality products. There is no problem in the BIS labs and we are working on betterment of the procedures such as self registration of the products online,” he added.
