Toy producer Funskool India, promoted by the MRF Group, has secured Bureau of Indian Standards’ certification for safety of electrical toys (IS 15644).
It is the primary Indian toy producer to get licensed by the BIS, forward of the January 2021 deadline set by the Centre, as per the corporate.
Funskool Goa and Ranipet crops even have bagged the licence for non-electric toys, stated the corporate in a press release.
The BIS standardisation was made obligatory for all toys designed or meant to be used in play by youngsters under 14 years of age by the Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry
“Our toys manufactured at the factories in India were already compliant with all the stringent international quality standards. With the BIS certification being made mandatory it will help the industry to compete with international manufacturers and become the export hub as envisioned by our Prime Minister,” stated R. Jeswant, CEO, Funskool India.
