On September 7, 2012, the Indian Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DEIT) issued the Electronics & Information Technology Goods (Requirement for Compulsory Registration) Order, 2012. Fifteen electronic products will be required to comply with the applicable Indian safety standards and mandatory registration before they are imported to, distributed, or sold in India. These products include video games, laptops/notebooks/tablets, plasma/LCD/LED televisions, optical disc players, visual display units, microwave ovens, printers, plotters and scanners, wireless keyboards, telephone answering machines, amplifiers, electronic musical systems, electronic clocks, set top boxes, and automatic data processing machines. The Order will come into force on April 3, 2013.

With an increasing demand for electronics products in India, the India government developed this new mandatory registration scheme with the aim to mandate technical standards in the interest of public health and safety. At the same time, the scheme will serve as global quality standards for domestic manufacturers to follow so that they can compete with imports by meeting international safety Standards.
