BUREAU of Indian Standards (BIS), the national standards body is mandated by Government of India to create a robust quality eco system in the country through its core activities of standardisation and certification.
Towards this mandate, BIS has started off with the concept of creating ‘Standards Club’ in schools and colleges wherein the concepts of standardisation and quality are introduced to the students at an early age. BIS in its first year of 2021-22 established 1,037 Standards Club across India and upon realising potential and success of novel endeavour, the target is ambitiously enhanced to creating 10,000 clubs by end of 2022-23.
Through Standards Club, BIS aims to expose science students of class 9th and above to the concepts of quality and standardisation through student centric activities.
The values children are exposed to in their formative years get embedded in their young minds and serve as a force multiplier that has the capacity to transform the future of the nation. Each Students Club comprises of a science teacher as its mentor and a minimum of 15 students as the members. BIS organises a two-day residential training for mentors of Standards Club wherein they are introduced to concepts of standards and quality, their role and expectations as mentors and different student centric activities that can be taken up.
