Step-by-Step Process to secure the BEE Registration In India

Apart from that, the applicant must visit the regional BEE office and submit a hard copy of the documents.

The former applies to large companies, while the latter applies to smaller facilities.

Step 2: Testing

Once the company gets registered, the BEE shall provide the applicant with login credentials to deal with the rest of the registration formalities.

Applicant must use the same to get portal access and file the Model Registration Application.

But before doing so, the applicant must comply with the mandatory testing requirements under which the product is sent to an accredited lab or ILAC MRA lab for quality checks.

Post-testing, the lab will generate a detailed report that confirms whether the given product conforms to the underlying norms or not.

Please note that the lab report stays valid for a limited period. Therefore, the timely submission of the same is vital to secure registration.

Step 3: Model Registration

After securing the lab report, the applicant can file the application for model registration on the BEE portal.

For this, one must upload the above documents, including the lab report and sample label.

Once done, the applicant must proceed to the fee submission option.

Post fee submission, the applicant should visit the concerned department to submit the application, hard copy originals, and payment receipt.
