No Objection Certificate from Ministry of Steel for Steel Products

Steel and steel products are one of the major products which are being imported to India on a large scale. Due to very heavy imports, there are high chances of product dumping. This is the reason; some steel products (approx 145) are already under the ambit of mandatory certification by the BIS Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).


The Ministry of Steel has introduced the Steel and Steel Products (Quality Control) Order, as part of the BIS Act, 2016. This order is periodically issued to encompass more steel grades and related products. Under this Quality Control Order, all imported steel products must possess BIS certification, along with a Mill Test Certificate. They should also bear markings indicating ISI and the BIS license number.

To facilitate the issuance of clarifications to steel importers, the Ministry of Steel has established a dedicated portal known as the TCQCO Portal. Importantly, it is now mandatory for all steel importers to apply and request clarification for each and every steel consignment imported into the country without BIS certification through this dedicated portal. It's worth noting that the Ministry issues clarifications for each individual import consignment. Importers are required to submit fresh applications through the TCQCO portal for every consignment, unless otherwise specified in the clarification provided.


A No Objection Certificate (NOC) is a certificate that is necessary for steel goods that have different specifications. If the properties of steel grade/product do not fall under the purview mandatory BIS list for Steel and Steel Products, the Ministry of Steel issues exemption/clarification/NOC on the consignment coming to India.

In some circumstances, a product's code implies to customs that BIS registrations are necessary - yet they are not. Furthermore, customs officials may confuse "similar" products with those covered by "required certification," resulting in needless delays in consignment clearance and significant penalties.

To avoid delays and penalties, you must get a "No Objection Certificate" (NOC) from BIS stating that the given steel product is not covered under mandatory BIS Certification. NOC will be granted by MOS on per grade per consignment basis.


The Ministry of Steel has constituted a Technical Committee for examination and analysis of the applications received for the issuance of clarifications, whether the products are covered under the purview of the Steel and Steel Products (Quality Control) Order, 2020. NOC will be granted by MOS on a per grade per consignment basis.

1) For clarification in Advance (before ordering the material)
