The effectiveness of its machinery, how strictly quality control standards are followed, the production process, the raw materials utilized, etc. are all taken into consideration.

Product Sample: BIS personnel gather a sample of the devices to assess the Transparent Float Glass' performance, reliability, quality, and safety criteria. The sample is assessed in both internal and BIS-approved laboratories to gain a deeper understanding of compliance.

Laboratory Results: If the laboratory results are unfavorable and reveal that the Transparent Float Glass does not fulfill BIS criteria, the license-issuing process is stopped. However, if the examination is fruitful and demonstrates that the Transparent Float Glass complies with BIS requirements, the procedure for issuing an FMCS license proceeds.
