Q : How many forms of Thailand Industrial Standards (TIS) mark?

 

 

In certifying the product quality, the certifier will issue the certificate and give the certification marks. In Thailand, Thailand Industrial Standards Institute certifies the product quality. The 3rd method, the 5th form is the product standard certification done by the 3rd party person. There is the test of product form, the assessment of quality control system of manufacturing plants, the observation on the result, and the issuance of permit for the use of TIS mark.

 

The products shown the TIS marks mean the products being passed the test and being certified by TISI to have quality and required standard as well as being safe for the consumption, having efficiency in using and having reasonable price. Presently, TISI permits the presentation of 5 TIS marks for the products as follows: 

 

1.General Standard mark is the mark certifying the product quality required by TISI. TISI has set the standard for such products already and the producers can apply for the quality certification voluntarily (general standard) for the development of product’s quality in compliance with the criteria set forth in the standards and guaranteeing the consumers or customers that such products have quality, safety, worthy, and suitability for the price such as food products, construction materials, office supplies, electrical appliances, etc. 

 2Regulatory Standard mark is the mark certifying the products which the law requires to be in accordance with the standards (regulatory standard). This is for the consumer’s safety and prevents the damage possibly incurring to the economic and society wholly. The law requires the producers, importers, and sellers to have to produce, import, and sell only the products in accordance with the standards. The Regulatory TIS Standard mark must be presented in every unit in order to represent that such products have passed the certification as regulated by law such as matches, electrical wires, ballast, detergent, PVC, iron products, fire extinguishers, toys, helmets, etc.

TISI will stipulate the standard by focusing on the safety mainly in order to protect the consumers for the safety in usage, for example, irons, electrical fans, etc. This mark is both regulatory and non-regulatory. If it is regulatory, the law must be conformed in order to make the products follow the standards set forth for the producers, importers, and sellers.
