Centre eases textile quality control

Manufacturers are required to obtain prior approvals from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certifying compliance for the sale of regulated items within the country.

The centre announced exemptions for inputs used in products intended for export from quality control orders (QCOs) issued by the Steel Ministry. As per a gazette notification, this relaxation has also been extended to QCOs issued by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) and the Textiles Ministry.

These modifications were implemented by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade to the Foreign Trade Policy, 2023.

According to the quality control regime, manufacturers are required to obtain prior approvals from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certifying compliance for the sale of regulated items within the country. Import of goods under the QCO regime is also limited, with only pre-certified products permitted for entry into the country.

Additionally, the Textiles Ministry had issued QCOs on geo, protective, agro, and medical textiles.
