Now helmets in India will come under compulsory Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification and publication of Quality Control Order (QCO).

According to a recent report, the new norms will see the 1.2 kg weight limit for helmets being done away with, which was implemented in 2018.

The rule restricted the sale of imported helmets in India that did not carry the ISI mark and weighed considerably more than the weight cap under the BIS norms.

However, the revised standard will allow the sale of imported helmets, though they will still need to comply with the Indian Standard (IS) norms.
