Adoption of Indian Standards issued by the Bureau of Indian Standards for materials and equipment, Test Methods, Glossary of Terms etc is of paramount importance from the point of view of developing common source of supply for both Defence and Civil needs. Defence Standardisation Programme will, therefore, provide for active participation in the preparation of Indian Standards and their eventual adoption. This will make it possible to include in Defence Production the commonly available commercial products
Our National Standards are Indian Standards prepared by Bureau of Indian Standards. It is the policy of Government and the Standardisation Committee to adopt BIS Standards where practicable in preference to making departmental specifications to avoid duplicity and exercise economy of effort. If, it is adopted in full without any modification, an ‘Approval Notification’ would be issued by the Directorate of Standardisation.
