The Bureau of Indian Standards has taken positive steps towards giving impetus to Modi government’s ambitious “Make In India” campaign by proposing changes in the BIS Act,1986. The need for amendment to BIS Act,1986 accrued from situations demanding BIS to keep pace with the changing requirements of the industry.The BIS Act has never been amended since its enactment in 1986. Due to certain limitations, difficulties being faced in implementation and ambiguity of the provisions, amendment to the BIS Act, 1986, have become necessary. The stakeholders’ meet on the subject was held at BIS which was presided over by Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Ram Vilas Paswan. The stakeholders included major industry associations including FICCI, ASSOCHAM, PHDCCI, CII, representatives from Ministry of Power, Ministry of Steel, Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Health and Welfare and all consumer associations.
