Guidelines for Series Approval of Products for Implementation of “Electronics and Information Technology Goods (Requirements for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2012”

These guidelines are issued to facilitate labs / manufacturers in formation of series of products for the purpose of Compulsory Registration under the “Electronics and Information Technology Goods (Requirements for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2012”.

  1. Definition of Product Family

    A product family can be defined by the maximum configuration of components / sub-assemblies plus a description of how the models are constructed from the maximum configuration using these components and sub-assemblies.
    All models which are included in the family typically have common design, construction, parts, or assemblies essential to ensure conformity with applicable requirements.
    If a product standard defines a product family, in the context of the specific standard, this definition takes over.
    1. Guidelines for Quantitative Selection of Samples
      Number of samples selected for testing from a series shall be one for every ten models in the series. However, worst case configuration from Safety Design consideration must be selected for testing.
    2. Guidelines for Technical / Qualitative Selection of Samples
