India’s Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) for Electronic Products

In 2012 Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS) was introduced by Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) along with Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The scheme then covered 15 electronic and consumer   products and added another 15 products in 2014.


Under this scheme it is mandatory for manufacturers to get their products registered before launching them in market.


The products are tested for safety as per the applicable IS standard. Overseas Manufacturers are required to have a local representative in India who will represent the manufacturer locally and will be responsible for placing the product in the market.


To make this program robust, Market Surveillance has been designed to ensure compliance.
DeitY’s authorised representatives will pick the product from the market and send it to designated lab for testing and verification. CB scheme is not applicable for this program.


This program is for the manufacturer and unique registration is granted for each manufacturing location. Registration is granted based on the following criteria:

•    Manufacturer (Each Location)
•    Brand Name
•    Product type
