- BIS also entails the role that involves working on improving its brand image, thereby increasing the brand value. Necessary measures must be resorted to give effect to it.
- BIS must make sure that the Web enabling is done pertaining to the Certification Marks Management System.
- Further, the BIS is required to ensure that all its associated laboratories are well taken care of. It can range from the need to upgrade the laboratories to streamlining its functioning.
- It is to be ensured by the BIS that the appropriate work is being done so that productivity is increased.
- fforts must be made by the BIS in the direction of intensified training. The training is required in various fields with special focus on the norms related to standardization and the aspects of the certification. Field of the testing must be given due attention.
- The implementation of the schemes must be overseen by BIS from time to time.
- It should be noted that with regards to the working of the BIS, there has to be introduction of the IT tools that would enhance the overall processing.
- BIS must also take care that the I-CARE programmers are effectively implemented which would in a way pave the way for providing the benefits pertaining to standardization and other related activities.
- BIS has to work on expanding the product certification and its types. Unique standard marks must be designed by the BIS so that they can be applied to the certification schemes. These marks would help the customers in identifying the kinds of quality.
- BIS should work towards the implementation of the schemes in the field of consumer protection.

What do we Understand by The Term CRS?
CRS simply stands to mean compulsory registration scheme. In accordance with the Bureau Of Indian Standards (BIS), the main aim of the CRS is to work towards providing a lift to the sectors that deal especially with electronic items and information technology.
This compulsory registration scheme also focuses on giving protection to the consumers in India from that of the products that are considered to be substandard. The protection in case of the spurious products as well.
An order came into effect in the year 2012 which is called the “Electronics and information technology Goods (Requirement for compulsory registration) order”. This order was duly notified by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. This was regarding the electronic items finding a place in the first phase.
In accordance with the provisions of such an order, no person is allowed to manufacture or indulge in distributing goods which do not comply with the Indian standards as laid down in the order. The products must also have to bear the Standard mark along with the registration number that has to be unique in order that they can be manufactured, imported or sold.
A license is granted by the Bureau of Indian Standards to the manufacturers so that they can make use of the standard mark or even put it to application. It can be done via registration which forms its basis on the self-declaration which runs in conformity with the articles.

The requisite license is granted as given under the provisions of the Compulsory Registration Scheme. The license would be granted in compliance with the conformity assessment scheme-II as given under the Schedule-II. This schedule is a part of the BIS (Conformity Assessment) regulations, 2018.
CRO Phase-V: Guidelines with Respect to Product Categories
Given below are the categories of the products as given under the CRO Phase V followed by the guidelines.
- Wireless Microphone
In the first place, it's about the microphone and its associated types which have to be the same and must find its basis on the external transmitters which can range from the handheld to the headset. Built-in type can also be the basis of the microphones.
The wireless microphone would entail the same enclosure material with an exception showcasing the decorative parts with the differences.
Next in line speaks about the fact that the acceptance would be made pertaining to any change in aesthetics or regarding the button’s location, only when it is duly received by the lab pinpointing that they certainly would not have any effect on the safety.
The important thing to be taken into account is regarding the need to have similar design of the PCB. It also includes the need to have a similar layout concerning the PCB. Further it is to be ensured that the same ip rating has to be resorted to in case of mic and also the transmitter.
Another thing to be taken care of is regarding the transmitter and of course the mic. It is to be ensured that these two things must embrace having the input voltage that is the same. In case of the batteries, especially the ones that are registered, must have the same rating.
In addition it is really crucial to be noted when it's about the wireless microphones, the thing being that the charging must be confined to probably the same type which can be the case of the wireless or USB.
Also, due attention must be given to the fact that the output rating has to be the same in case of the power bank or registered adapter as that of the input associated with the microphone.
- Digital camera
In the very first place, the first thing that must be adhered to is that the enclosure material should be the same with an exception in case of the differences related to the decorative parts.
Second important thing in case of the digital camera is that there has to be invariably the same type of input voltage. Also, the design layout of the PCB must be the same. Subsequently, the ip rating must also be the same.
Following it, with respect to the registered batteries, it must be resorted to having the same battery rating, if it seems applicable and feasible. It should also have the functionalities that ought to be the same. To exemplify, we can name printing.
Last but not the least, if applicable, the adapter that is registered must entail the output rating similar to the Digital camera’s input.
- Video Camera
The first thing to be marked in bold is pertaining to the video camera’s type which can be with display or can be even without display. Following this, the enclosure material used must be the same with an exception with respect to the decorative parts and the related differences.
Next in line is the need to embrace the class of construction which should be the same. Further, the input voltage must remain the same. Along with this, the design layout pertaining to the PCB must also be the same.
It must also be highlighted that with regards to the mounting mechanism, it has to be the same. Handheld is the perfect example for this followed by the tripod. Further, it is to be ensured that the adapter which is registered must have the output rating that ought to be the same as that of the video camera’s input.
