The Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals has given time till July 3 for manufacturers of polyester filament, polyester POY, industrial yarn, and grey and white yarn to get Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification.
In an order dated March 31, it said BIS certification will become mandatory for the four products from July 3 instead of April 3.
Welcoming the announcement, Ravi Sam, chairman of Southern India Mills’ Association, said BIS certification is however, mandatory now for viscose staple fibre (VSF) and polyester staple fibre (PSF). There are speciality fibres that are not made in India and these should be exempted from the Quality Control Orders for VSF and PSF.
