FSSAI extends Food license renewal date

The Indian Food Safety and Standard Authority (FSSAI) has extended the grace period for Food Business Operators (FBOs) until June 30, 2020, to apply for the registration or license renewal that runs from March 22, 2020, to expired or expired on May 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

FSSAI Extends Food License Renewal Date

FSSAI’s decision found that FBOs, that generally use govt. help desks, govt. agencies, or advisors to submit their applications, are unable to do so because COVID19 movement restrictions exist across the country even for doing your FSSAI license renewal or FSSAI registrations.

The matter was examined by the FSSAI and the following was decided:

The FBOs whose license/registration expired/expires between March 22, 2020, and May 31, 2020, have a grace period to apply for an extension of their license/registration until June 30, 2020, without any late fee. In the meantime, the FSSAI licenses/registrations are considered valid.

Given the interruption of Internet services in the UTs of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, the FSSAI (order number 15 (6) 2017 / FLRS / RCD / FSSAI from October 3, 2019, allowed FBOs whose FSSAI license/registration has expired since August 1 expired/expires in 2019 until internet services are restored to continue their groceries with their existing license/registration number without a late fee until further orders.

However, the FSSAI has also decided to revoke its earlier decision to allow FBOs in J&K and Ladakh to continue operations in the wake of no Internet services in the region. The order in this regard was given last year in October saying that until the Internet services resume, the FBOs were allowed to operate if their licenses or registration were expired by August 2019.

Now that the Internet services have resumed, thus the said order ceases to be in effect, says the apex food regulator. However, since there is a lockdown across pan-India, the FBOs of J&K and Ladakh were also given the same grace period till June 30 to apply for their license renewal.

This is done with the approval of the responsible authority.

    Thanks, I appreciate it!

  2. Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and
    I was curious about your situation; many of
    us have developed some nice practices and we are looking to exchange strategies with others,
    please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  5. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
