Defence companies can self-certify product quality: Ministry Of Defence


In a major policy shift, the defence ministry has decided to allow private firms to self-certify the quality of their products. While industry terms it progressive, defence employees have denounced the move.

The policy, which will also cover defence public sector units (DPSUs), was notified on May 13. Approved by defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman, the objective of the policy is to promote ease of doing business and achieve the vision of ‘Make in India’.

As per the policy, a mechanism will be instituted for awarding self-certification status to private industry and DPSUs. Currently, supplies by DPSUs and private vendors are subjected to clearance by the Directorate General of Quality Assurance (DGQA). Read More
