The Standards Institution regularly supervises the quality management and manufacturing process and tests the products to ensure that the product conforms to the standard.

Any manufacturer of a product for which the Standards Institution has confirmed that it is manufactured pursuant to the Israeli standards and that the standard has been found compatible for licensing.
Any importer which has an agreement with a manufacturer for the marketing of its products under the importer's name.
