Under “One Nation, One Standard” policy, SDOs will support BIS

Government of India recently announced, “One Nation, One Standard” policy to ensure uniform quality of Products & Services in India.

Although the Bureau of Indian Standards – BIS is the only body framing National Standards, there exist many Industry-specific Standards framed by other Government/Non-government organisations. One of the Non-Government Technical Societies that supports BIS in the development of Standards related to the Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Industry is ISHRAE – Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.

The process under consideration is that the SDOs (Standards Development Organisations) will prepare the Standard and submit it to BIS for consideration to be adopted as a National Standard. Incase BIS accepts this as a National Standard it will be released with the name of the SDO included in the title, say, BIS: ISHRAE: XXXX.

ISHRAE had earlier framed a Standard for rating “Chillers” which was finally published as BIS Standard “IS: H001-TRLC” – Guidelines for Testing & Rating of Liquid Chilling Packages.

ISHRAE President – Vikram Murthy, has stated that ISHRAE policy is to assist Bureau with participation in their various Sectional Committees. ISHRAE also has pioneered a Standard on “Indoor Environmental Quality” (IEQ), and hopes, BIS adopts it as a National Standard in future.

The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers – ISHRAE, was founded in 1981 at New Delhi by a group of eminent HVAC&R professionals.

ISHRAE today has nearly 25,000 HVAC&R professionals and Student-members. ISHRAE operates from 43 Chapters, and sub Chapters spread all over India, with HQ in Delhi. The Society is led by a team of elected officers, who are members of the Society, working voluntarily, and collectively called the Board of Governors.
