The applicable conformity assessment procedures can be either Registration of Product Certification Scheme (Module II+III) or Type-approved Batch Inspection Scheme.
Under the Registration of Product Certification Scheme (RPC), domestic manufacturers or importers must have their products type-tested by BSMI or BSMI-recognized testing laboratories and apply for product registration.
A conformity-to-type declaration shall be drawn up by the manufacturer or the authorized local representative. The certified product can use the Commodity Inspection Mark with the letter “R” and an ID number issued by BSMI. Further inspection is not required during customs clearance. RPC certificate is valid for 3 years.
Under the Type-approved Batch Inspection Scheme (TABI), domestic manufacturers or importers also need to have their products type-tested by BSMI or BSMI-recognized testing laboratories and apply for Type Approval.
