In today’s global marketplace, consumers are becoming increasingly conscious about the quality and safety of the products they purchase. One way to ensure this is by looking for certification marks that guarantee adherence to specific standards. In Thailand, the TISI certification mark plays a vital role in assuring consumers of the quality and safety of various products.

What is the TISI certification mark?

The Thailand Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) is a governmental organization responsible for establishing and maintaining industrial standards in Thailand. The TISI certification mark is a symbol used to indicate that a product or service complies with the relevant Thai industrial standards. It serves as a guarantee of quality, safety, and conformity to specific requirements. The mark is usually found on the product itself, on the packaging, or in product manuals.
