In controlling the product quality, authorities always issue the certificate and give the certification marks. In Thailand, Thailand Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) is responsible to certify the product quality. The products shown the Thailand Industrial Standard (TIS) marks mean the products being passed the test and being certified by TISI to have quality and required standard as well as being safe for the consumption, having efficiency in using and having reasonable price. Presently, TISI permits these following marks for the products:
- General Standard mark is the mark certifying the product quality required by TISI. TISI has set the standard for such products already and the producers can apply for the quality certification voluntarily for the development of product’s quality in compliance with the criteria set forth in the standards and guaranteeing the consumers or customers that such products have quality, safety, worthy, and suitability for the price such as food products, construction materials, office supplies, electrical appliances, etc.
- Standard mark for safety is the mark certifying the products which requires the safety in usage. TISI will stipulate the standard by focusing on the safety mainly in order to protect the consumers for the safety in usage, for example, irons, electrical fans, etc. This mark is both regulatory and non-regulatory. If it is regulatory, the law must be conformed in order to make the products follow the standards set forth for the producers, importers, and sellers.
- Standard mark for safety is the mark certifying the products which have the properties in conserving the environment such as water saving and not causing air pollution for developing the good quality of life of people and conserving the environment of the country such as water-saving washing machine, non-CFC refrigerators, etc. This mark is both regulatory and non-regulatory. If it is regulatory, the law must be conformed in order to make the products follow the standards set forth for the producers, importers, and sellers.
- Standard mark for electromagnetic compatibility is the mark certifying the products which have the properties of electromagnetic compatibility. They are the products which can function with other products or can be used simultaneously without sending the electromagnetic wave partly which are IT products such as telephones, fax, radio transmitter-receiver, medical instruments, etc. This mark is both regulatory and non-regulatory. If it is regulatory, the law must be conformed in order to make the products follow the standards set forth for the producers, importers, and sellers. 5. Standard mark for community products. In certifying the quality of community products, the certifier is TISI with the simple conditions of certification and different from the certification of TIS. The products certified with Standard mark for community products of TISI will have to present the Standard mark for community products as in the above picture on the products. 6. Regulatory Standard mark is the mark certifying the products which the law requires to be in accordance with the standards. This is for the consumer’s safety and prevents the damage possibly incurring to the economic and society wholly. The law requires the producers, importers, and sellers to have to produce, import, and sell only the products in accordance with the standards. The Regulatory TIS Standard mark must be presented in every unit in order to represent that such products have passed the certification as regulated by law such as matches, electrical wires, ballast, detergent, PVC, iron products, fire extinguishers, toys, helmets, etc.
It can be clearly seen that the certificate of product quality serves as a shield for its products. Your goods can be exported to Thailand without being pending because of cumbersome quality control procedures, goods will be cleared faster than non-certified exporters. Having a shield in hand makes you feel more secure when exporting goods to Thailand. For items with a product quality sign, Thai people will also give preference and consider in their choice. When a person buys your product, it will entice more people to know and choose your brand. The “butterfly effect” in purchasing will have a great impact on the turnover and reputation of importers, especially when the economy is still facing many difficulties as a result of the Covid epidemic.
