Q4. Is there a facility to submit an online application for grant of BIS licence?

A. Yes, for domestic manufacturers, applications are accepted only through the Manliness portal (www.manakonline.in). You are required to register yourself on the portal and then follow the instructions to apply for a licence providing all necessary details such as manufacturing machinery, test equipment etc. Payments shall also be made online.
However, for foreign manufacturers, the application form has to be downloaded from BIS website www.bis.gov.in (Home>Conformity Assessment>Product Certification>FMCS). Filled up application form has to be submitted to BIS Foreign Manufacturers Certification Department (FMCD) located in Manakalaya, BIS HQ, New Delhi.
