FSSAI REGISTRATION

All food business operators engaged in the manufacture, manufacturing, delivery, storage and selling of food products shall require FSSAI Registration or License compulsory. Needless to say, FSSAI Registration is a bit different from FSSAI License, depending on the size and nature of the company. Each FBO should have the registration or license required.

Frequently Asked Questions​

FSSAI stands for India's Food Safety and Standards Authority, which is an agency that regulates and governs the food industry in India. It is an autonomous body established under the Government of India's Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.

The FSSAI was developed in compliance with the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 (FSS Act), which is a consolidating food safety and regulation law in India. It ensures the quality controls of food products are carried out thereby curtailing food adulteration and the selling of substandard goods. It is responsible for the registration and licensing of the Food Business Operators (FBO) in India and it sets out the rules and regulations for operating the Indian food sector.

Any food business operator engaged in the manufacture, refining, distribution, and sale of food products must obtain an FSSAI registration or license compulsorily. FSSAI Registration is different from FSSAI License, in the sense that FBO can obtain the requisite registration or license depending on the size and nature of the company. It is a 14-digit identification or license number that is printed on all packets of food. The 14 digit registration number contains information of the state of assembly, the permit of the manufacturer. The purpose of this registration process is to establish more transparency on the FBO in order to maintain the food products quality. The process and criteria for licensing and registration are governed by the Food Safety & Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Business) Regulations, 2011.

FSSAI registration starts by sending Form A (Application) to the Department of Food and Safety. This application can be approved or denied by the Department within 7 days from the date of receipt of the application, and the applicant must be informed in writing of the refusal. If the application is approved the department may issue a certificate of registration with the applicant's registration number and photo. The FBO should show the registration certificate prominently during the business hours at the place of business. A passport picture and a proof of photo ID are the common documents needed for simple, state, and central registration.

The following additional documentation will be required for State and Central licenses:

  • A completed and signed Form B
  • Address proof
  • List of food category and products
  • Layout plan of the proposed location
  • List of equipment
  • NOC from the municipality
  • Incorporation certificate
  •  List of directors/partners
  • MOA and AOA
  • Water test report
  • Import Export Code

You will renew your FSSAI license 30 days before the original license expires. Here you must provide the authority concerned with your current license number. It takes about 30-40 days to renew a license

The FSSAI License has a validity of 1 to 5 years. An operator has the right to make a decision about how many years he or she is seeking. The cost would grow or decrease, depending on the number of years he or she has applied for.

FOUR STEPS FOR FSSAI REGISTRATION ONLINE

ELIGIBILITY AND LICENSE TYPE

You need to verify the eligibility right at the very first stage. You have to determine what group you fall under. You must fill out FSSAI licensing form A on the FSSAI website after determining if you are in Central, State, and Basic Registration. After that, the payment for the FSSAI application must be made at the FBO located near your place.

REGISTRATION FEES AND PAPERWORK

You have to file Form B with the Government after that. The FSSAI Registration process involves several declarations and resolutions. Your application must fill in everything. This may include board approval, self-declarations of the owner, and other documentation needed. The required fees will be charged electronically upon completion of the Documents. You’ll get a message once the payment is completed. The amount of the payment is expressed in your FSSAI account.

CONFIRM LICENSE APPLICATION

You will need to get in contact with the government department after that to take a look at the progress on your submission. The government will verify that and give your request for edits back. If you do not respond within the next 15 working days from the date of submission of the document, your document will be denied.

GET FSSAI LICENSE

It could take 45-60 working days for the government department to thoroughly verify and approve your application. If the government department considers all the furnished in form is perfect, it will accept your submission.

I appreciate the fastest way of services by AVS. Till now we got registered around 6 group companies,(Limited, Private Limited and LLP). Their Teams approach to deal with us was something I liked most. Special mention to Mr. Rahul and Ms. Neha. Guys, frankly speaking initially i was in doubt whether to trust these people or not? but once spoke and saw the way they handled my companies formation work, they ended up forming our all group companies and now handling the regular Accounting, Taxation, GST etc... If you are searching for a CA for all your needs, i suggest you may pick these guys and can assign one task before you make any opinions. BTW, we are availing their services since last 3 years. Thanks!
