The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has informed the Supreme Court panel on road safety that the process to ban sale of non-ISI certified helmets can be completed in six months.

The government has to notify that all two-wheeler helmets must have certification by the BIS in order to reduce road fatalities. This shall be a positive point for branded helmet manufacture such as Studds, Vega, Steelbird, CEAT, etc.

Once this norm comes into place, helmets which do not have BIS certification cannot be sold any more, and sale of helmets with fake ISI mark will attract heavy penalties for the violators.

Death Toll Based on Non- ISI Helmet Use – WHO Report:  
  • 2 wheeler riders who do not wear a helmet are 40 per cent more likely to die from a head injury.
  • More than 10,000 two-wheeler riders lost their lives in 2016, owing to head injuries and not wearing helmets and sub-standard helmets without any safety requirements.

Impact of Norms on Imported Helmets:
  • Imported helmets which are internationally recognized to be safe and have DOT, ECE and Snell certification. These helmets are not only more expensive, but are of far superior quality than many ISI-certified brands which are sold in India.
  • A ban on non-ISI helmets is proper, but there still remains a question mark on what the government's guidelines on banning non-ISI helmets will have on these imported helmets, some of which conform to very high safety standards.
