QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS CERTIFICATION

STANDARDIZATION AND QUALITY CONTROL MATTERS

Percentage of standard and certified steel produced by integrated steel plants varies from 80-90%. In secondary steel sector this percentage is very low. Besides, many of the units in the secondary sector particularly the induction furnace units produce and sell steel products which do not conform to the prescribed standards. This is a major issue and Ministry of Steel is ceased of the matter.

In India, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the National Standards Body, who are engaged in formulation and implementation of National Standards knows as Indian Standards. These Standards are formulated by designated Technical Committees and in most of the Steel Committees, Ministry of Steel (TW) is represented. Adoption of Indian Standards or marking products to bear ISI Mark by its very nature is optional unless it is made mandatory under specific Law, Rules & Regulations

Vide Gazette Notification dated 12th March, 2012, Ministry of Steel had notified two Quality Control orders namely: Steel and Steel Products (Quality Control) Order, 2012 and Steel and Steel Products (Quality Control) Second Order, 2012. In the first order 7 Standards which were notified and now require mandatory Certification by BIS which are given hereunder:

Indian Standard number

Title

1785(Part 1)

Specification for plain hard-drawn steel wire for pre-stressed concrete; Part 1 Cold-drawn stress relieved wire.

1785(Part 2)

Specification for plain hard-drawn steel wire for pre-stressed concrete; Part 2 as drawn wire.

6003

Specification for indented wire for pre-stressed concrete.

6006

In the second quality Control order Ministry of Steel has notified 9 more Indian Standards for mandatory Certification by BIS, which are given hereunder:
