ISI mark on Car Windshield and Windows to be made Compulsory

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is working upon bringing in legislation to mandate the use of ISI mark on windshields and windows of cars not only manufactured but also on those assembled in the country. According to certain media reports, this rule could come into effect from April 1st 2021.

  • This new rule is expected to somehow restrict the entry of low-quality glass and similar materials used widely by many renowned manufacturers in the after-sales and service market.
  • This will also help in increasing the overall safety standards in the automobile industry. However, the new additional certification could escalate the overall production cost of cars.
  • The import of low-quality windshield and window glass has become a serious threat to the safety and well-being of not only passengers but also to the manufacturer’s reputation.
  • The new rule is very much similar to the rule passed a couple of years back which states that all tyres sold in the country will have to be stamped with an ISI mark to prevent the entry of low-quality tyres in the country.

  • This new legislation will not be applicable to manufacturers who directly import their vehicles in the country in the form of CBU (Completely Built-Up Unit).
  • This could also turn out to be an additional hurdle for many carmakers who already are under a considerable amount of weight of the rapidly mounting set of new rules and regulations.
  • However, the new legislation will definitely help in maintaining a certain and rather acceptable level of safety and quality standard for certain equipment used in the automotive industry which in this case is the windshield and windows of the car, especially in case of an accident.
