`Consider BIS mark an eligibility for labelling pumpsets'

By Our Staff Reporter

COIMBATORE, MARCH 15. The Southern India Engineering Manufacturers Association (SIEMA) has suggested that the Bureau of Indian Standard mark should be considered as the first eligibility requirement for labelling pumpsets and motors for energy efficiency (Standards and Labelling Programme).

Speaking at the inaugural of a technical seminar on the implementation of revised pump standards here, he said more than 45 per cent of water-lifting pumpsets in the country was manufactured in this region. Observing that ``quality is now a customer determination'', he said in order to improve the quality of pumpsets and motors to meet the international demands, quality standards were also upgraded.

He called upon the manufacturers to implement the ``improved version of standards''.

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) was in the process of evolving standards for electrical goods, including motors and pumpsets, and also a process of labelling the items to distinguish the energy efficient products from others.
