Pelco first video surveillance provider to have entire product range BIS certified

Pelco™ by Schneider Electric, a global leader in surveillance and security, has announced that it is the first video surveillance provider to become Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certified for its complete product range, recently made mandatory for all CCTV-products in India. Pelco has been BIS certified since May 23 to sell its security and surveillance solutions in the country receiving third party guarantee on quality, safety, and reliability of its products.

“We are proud partners to many businesses and government agencies in India and respect the policies in place to allow continued use of our innovative solutions without fear of non-compliance,” said Robert Beliles, Vice President of Marketing, Pelco by Schneider Electric.

Just as is the case with many other products that are sold on the Indian market, CCTV hardware now also needs to adhere to the BIS Product Certification Scheme process. This requires that manufacturers provide samples to BIS to be tested in an independent lab. Pelco passed all tests successfully and can sell all of its CCTV cameras on the Indian market today; guaranteeing all stakeholders (channel partners, end-customers, partners or consultants) that Pelco products abide by the standards set forth by BIS.

“We consider the BIS standards for CCTV cameras an excellent thing. Let’s put the bar as high as possible so customers can be certain to receive high quality products,” says Saranbir Baweja, Country Manager, Pelco by Schneider Electric
