Government shocked 160 Chinese companies selling toys in India without quality certificate. The government has released the data to this extent. Around 160 Chinese companies are yet to be issued the mandatory quality certificate to sell toys in India, citing the delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. From January 2021, India has made it mandatory for toys sold in the country to obtain the ISI quality certification mark from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

About 160 Chinese toy companies have applied for the BIS quality certificate in the last two years, said BIS Director General Pramod Kumar Tiwari. He said that in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, they have not been released yet.

Hence quality certificate not issued:

Generally BIS Quality Certificate is issued after inspection of factories. He said that BIS officials could not visit China due to pandemic restrictions and health issues. Tiwari also said that we were not invited for inspection and we cannot go to China due to corona virus. In the last two years, BIS has issued quality certificates to 29 foreign toy manufacturers, including 14 from Vietnam, Tiwari said.

982 Indian companies awarded Quality Certificate:

During the same period, BIS 982 also issued quality certificates to Indian toy manufacturers, he said. For the past few days, BIS has been conducting enforcement raids at major airports and malls across the country for violating Toy Quality Control Orders. Tiwari said if consumers find that the sale of ‘Made in China’ toys is illegal in the country, they can file a complaint.

Attacks on sellers of fake toys:

However, for the past few days, enforcement has been conducting raids at major airports and malls across the country for violating toy quality control orders. Officials said that they are conducting raids on toy shops located in major airports and malls of the country and found that imported toys are being sold without BIS quality market. Tiwari said that fake BIS licenses were used to sell toys in some places. BIS plans to conduct raids for a whole month.

Tiwari said consumers can complain if they find ‘Made in China’ toys being sold illegally in the country. Addressing the 76th Foundation Day of BIS, Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Piyush Goyal said that countries which followed quality at the initial stage of their development have developed better and faster.

He called for creating more awareness about quality through BIS Quality Connect programs across the country. He suggested that retired technical experts should also be utilized in this endeavour.
