Petrochem, chem­i­cal prod­ucts need manda­tory stan­dards - P Raghaven­dra Rao

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

The petrochem and chem­i­cal prod­ucts may soon have manda­tory stan­dards to be fol­lowed.“There is a need to make stan­dard manda­tory for these prod­ucts. Out of 1,200, only one prod­uct cat­e­gory has manda­tory stan­dards as of now,’’ P Raghaven­dra Rao, Sec­re­tary, De­part­ment of Chem­i­cals and Petro­chem­i­cals, said at a road show on In­dia Chem 2018, Mum­bai.

The govern­ment will work on how to make these vol­un­tary and sel­f­reg­u­la­tory stan­dards as manda­tory norms, stat­ing that such mea­sures will help the in­dus­try to be glob­ally com­pet­i­tive. Ob­serv­ing that In­dia is now a net im­porter of chem­i­cals and petro­chem­i­cals, Rao said man­u­fac­tur­ing of chem­i­cals should be stepped up to in­crease ex­ports.
