TIS License Application Process
Like all other countries, Thailand has its own quality standards system, Thailand Industrial Standard. According to the Royal Thai Law, companies which want to import products to Thailand must comply with this standard system, however, some products are required to register for TIS Certificate, others do not.
Currently there are many TISI standards, covering numerous consumer products such as food, electrical appliances, vehicles, construction material and many more. If you follow news, you will find that almost every month few new standards are added.
What we help you to achieve
Before license is issued, 2 steps must be conducted:
1. Assessment of the quality control system of the manufacturer
2. Evaluation of your products
Assessment of the quality control system of the manufacturer

A. Factory visit and/or assessment

In the case of application to import products and factory visit is not practical, such assessment will be carried out on the documents showing the quality control process of the manufacturers. Factory visit at the factory abroad may be necessary if the quality control documents have proved to be inadequate.
B. Examination of the ISO 9000 certificates
Assessment of the quality control system will be exempted for the manufacturers who have been awarded ISO 9000 certificates. Quality management system certificate of the manufacturer for such product or product group will be considered provided that such certificate is issued by the certification body which complies with the following requirements:
- the ISO 9000 certification body which has been accredited by the Office of the National Accreditation Council (NAC) of Thailand, or

Test report issued by such laboratory will be considered. Similar to Examination of the ISO 9000 certificates, TISI may take sample for additional testing on the items where the test report differs from the applicable standard and the particular requirements for products certification or is not complete.
We save your time and money
The TIS Certificate registration process is similar to the standard certification process of other countries in Southeast Asia. However, if you do not know the process and have no experience, it will be very time consuming and costly.
Factories will often not understand the regulations to prepare documents, samples or satisfy assessors, because their strengths are only production expertise. And so, sometimes they will make the registration process unfavorable and encounter some troubles. That’s where our expertise and knowledge come handy.
