Indian Stainless Steel Development Association (ISSDA), the apex body representing the stainless steel industry applauds government for introducing the Stainless Steel Products Quality Control Order, 2016.

N.C. Mathur, President – ISSDA said, “This is a move in the direction as envisioned by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in his 68th Independence Day address calling the Indian industry to move towards “Zero Defect” manufacturing. This order will ensure competitiveness and growth of India’s manufacturing sector".

ISSDA would like to re-emphasize that Stainless steel Quality Control Order (QCO) 2016 is in the larger interest of the domestic stainless steel industry. It must be noted that this QCO does not cover Raw Material (Stainless Steel) containing less than 1 per cent nickel.

While stainless steel containing less than 1 per cent nickel is majorly used for kitchen utensils. Moreover, this QCO is not restrictive as the end user is free to use other grades of stainless steel which is not covered in the QCO. Therefore, the onus to supply ISI marked stainless steel rests exclusively on the stainless steel manufacturer rather than the end user. ISSDA would like to point out that, this stainless steel quality control order is mandatory only for the raw material supplier and not for end application.
