India issues new quality control order on hydrogen peroxide

On August 24, 2022, the Indian Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers published the Hydrogen Peroxide (Quality Control) Order 2022. This Order replaces the Hydrogen Peroxide (Quality Control) Order, 2020, and will enter into force in 91 days after its promulgation. The only change is that the Indian standard that must be complied with has changed from IS 2080: 1980 to the latest version IS 2080: 2021. Target products must bear the “Standard Mark” based on the license granted by the Bureau of Indian Standards in Scheme I of Schedule II of the “Bureau of Indian Standards (Conformity Assessment) Regulations, 2018.” The Order does not apply to products for export. Anyone who violates the provisions of the Quality Control Order will be punished under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act 2016.
