Q1. There are 7 standards mentioned in the Toys (Quality Control) Order, 2020. Do I need to submit separate applications for each standard?

Applicable Primary Standard

1

Non-Electric Toys (these are ordinary toys such as rattles, dolls, puzzles, etc. which do not have any function dependent on electricity)

2

Manufacturers while applying for a license, may choose one of the above applicable primary standards based on the type of toy for which license is required. If license is required for more than one type of toy (i.e. non-electric and electric), separate applications shall be made for each type. (However, samples shall be tested by BIS for conformity to the primary standard and the secondary standards which are applicable i.e. IS 9873 parts 1,2,3,4,7, and 9 etc.)
