BIS Stan­dard

Consumer Voice - - Lead Level In Paints -

In 2013, the Bureau of In­dian Stan­dards (BIS) re­vised the stan­dards for lead in paints from 1,000 ppm to 90 ppm. Some small paint man­u­fac­tur­ers promised to ad­here to the newly re­vised stan­dards. How­ever, the said change does not re­flect in the cur­rent study, where mostly SME paint sam­ples were an­a­lysed. One rea­son may be that the BIS stan­dards are vol­un­tary in na­ture, which means that the paint man­u­fac­tur­ers are un­der no com­pul­sion to ad­here to them.
