Adding to this, Devinder Singh, Head- Regulatory & Corporate Affairs, Noida Software Technology Park Ltd. said, “Any Certification by itself is a tedious and time taking process. Where the aspect of human safety is required it becomes all the more tedious. It not only involves monetary expenditure at various stages, but also requires time and extensive documentation, testing both in-house & various International Certification agencies like "CE", "UL" etc. The equipments presently requiring BIS certification for import or manufacturing in India need to be tested by Govt. recognized laboratories for meeting all standards including safety and transmission. Besides BIS certified, our subscribers would get to choose from SD and HD quality, MPEG4 STBs."
