Government has exempted handicraft and GI Toys from Quality Control Order. Taking steps towards the Prime Minister’s vision of making India a global manufacturing hub for sale and export of toys, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, DPIIT has devised a comprehensive action plan. Quality Control order has been issued by the Department for standardization and quality adherence of Toys. The order will come into effect from 1st January next year.

Now, DPIIT has released Toys (Quality Control) Second Amendment Order, 2020. It exempts goods manufactured and sold by artisans registered with Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), from use of Standard Mark under licence from Bureau of Indian Standards. The Amendment Order also exempts products registered as Geographical Indications from following Indian Toy Standards and compulsory use of Standard Mark licence.
