India to Implement Quality Control Orders for Footwear Industry

The government will implement quality norms for leather and non-leather footwear from 1st July 2023, a move aimed at containing the import of sub-standard goods and boosting the domestic industry, the Union Commerce and industry ministry said.

“Quality Control Orders (QCO) for leather and non-leather footwear would be implemented with effect from 1 July 2023,” the ministry said while addressing a gathering of over 100 industrialists engaged in manufacturing sports shoes in India.

The minister reiterated that BIS Standards need to be followed for better quality and larger production which eventually leads to good quality products for consumers.

BIS and FDDI shall establish testing facilities at the industry clusters. He suggested that the creation of Common Facility Centres for molding and designing with the support of FDDI may be encouraged.

The Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme was also being considered to create large capacities and promote economies of scale. The minister said that officials of DPIIT and industry representatives should study international best practices of quality so that they can be implemented in India.
