ISI Certification to become Mandatory for Car Windscreen & Windows

by | Jul 21, 2020

isi mark to become compulsory for windscreen and windows


The Bureau of Indian Standards or ISI is in the process of making ISI certification mandatory for all car windows and windscreens. The new law is expected to get implemented by next year (2021). This mandate will also cover the cars that are not just being manufactured but assembled in India. However, it is expected that it will not cover CBUs which are directly imported into the country.

The new law will be helpful in curbing the use of subpar materials used for making windscreen & window glasses and will encourage the manufacturers to use quality materials instead. This law is a great move by the law body as it will prevent the entry of low-quality material entering the country. The after-sales market is an area where subpar items make their way easily so this mandate will a positive impact on this as well.

Though the additional certification is promising for a safer car-owning experience, it is likely to cause some dissatisfaction among the manufacturers because of higher costs of certification. The process of getting a certification could be a bit time consuming as the imported glass has to have the certification mark before its import into the country and this could be another reason for their discontent.

To address the inconvenience caused, the bureau is likely to inform the automakers well before its implementation. This period is likely to be about 6 months, which could be beneficial for the automakers for readying the inventory for the new law. The proposed date for the implementation of the new law is April 1, 2021.

Overall, this new rule will help in escalating the safety & quality levels of the automobiles but will also add to the already swarmed list of regulations.
