Standards related to machinery safety

The BIS has various technical committees, most relevant for this study are the Mechanical
Engineering Department MED 40 Safety of Machinery, Electrotechnical Department ETD 44
Safety of Machinery- Electrotechnical Aspects, and Chemical Department CHD 8 Occupational
Safety and Health.

A more recent committee under Mechanical Engineering Department, MED 40: Safety of
Machinery has been established and mirrors the International Organization for Standardization’s
ISO/TC 199 Safety of Machinery. The BIS committee has finalized 32 Indian Standards (under
print) which are an adoption of the corresponding ISO standard.
