Suprema has announced that its biometric scanners have just been certified by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
According to the company, Suprema is the first to receive the certification in the biometric access control and time attendance segment. Certification was given in association with Suprema’s local partner in India, A-ID Systems.
“It is very meaningful to receive the first BIS registration grant in the access control and time attendance market and industry,” Young S. Moon, Vice President of Suprema said. “As demand for our products has been steadily increasing in the Indian market, we have endeavored to comply with these strict and critical procedures in the shortest order. Suprema hopes that the prompt application and certification will accelerate our business in the marketplace.”
In order to be certified by the BIS, under the electronics and information technology goods order issued by the Indian Department of Electronics and Information Technology, 15 electronic and IT products are required to comply with applicable safety standards and registration before they can be imported to, distributed or solid in India.
“BIS Certification is a great milestone for us to offer quality solutions to our customers by eliminating cheep and harmful products from our market,” Sandeep Shetty, CEO of A-ID Systems India said.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Suprema also recently announced that it had provided versions of its fingerprint PC security scanner to Pakistan-based SIM manufacturing and biometric security solution solutions provider Kwick High-Tech & Solutions.
