BIS and Tea Board of India Recognise Intertek


The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has recognised Intertek to carry out the safety testing for audio, video and IT. The Tea Board of India has also empanelled Intertek to provide a Codex HACCP based Food Safety Management System Standards Certification.

As the Indian industrial sector looks to grow both domestically as well as in the global market, it will be seeking to partner with global leaders, with infrastructure, technology and domain knowledge as provided by Intertek. Rajesh Saigal, Managing Director, Indian sub-continent, said,

“Intertek is known for its delivery of quality solutions that increase the value of our customers’ products, processes and assets. With these recent recognitions, we will now be able to grow trusted partnerships with our customers in these two growth segments. These recognitions will help us deliver quality led by our global quality experts, in-depth industry knowledge with local understanding and insight.” Intertek was recognised recently by the Food Safety and Standards Authority (FSSAI) to undertake testing, inspection and auditing of Food Business Operators (FBOs). This will enable FBOs to demonstrate compliance to requirements under FSS ACT, a key requirement for FSSAI license and its renewals. Intertek will be responsible for inspecting food businesses for basic sanitary and hygiene requirements, conducting preliminary inspection of newly established FBOs, routine and surprise inspections as directed by the FSSAI, conducting periodical audits at least once a year for food businesses, verifying rectifi cation of defi ciencies pointed out by the FSSAI, guiding and advising license applicants. The accreditation further authorises Intertek to award the Food Safety Management System (FSMS) certifi cate as per FSS Act that is mandatory for all FOBs and issue certifi cation for FSMS.
