India Revises Safety Marking Requirement for Adapters for Household Appliances

Apr 01, 2019 India Revises Safety Marking Requirement for Adapters for Household Appliances

india-taj-mahalThe Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has issued revision S.O. 709(E) to remove the reference to IEC 60035-1 from the electrical safety certification label for adapters for household and similar electrical appliances.

Previously, the safety mark for these products listed both IS 302 (Part 1) and the equivalent IEC Standard, IEC 60035, while the new standard only requires the reference to IS 302 (Part 1). The revision amends S.O. 3415(E), 2017, at page 7, Sl. No. (10) in column (4) of the Schedule, to substitute “IS 302 (Part 1)” for “IS 302 (Part 1) / IEC 60035 – 1.”
