FSSAI Registration

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) was set up under Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, in order to ensure quality of food items available in Indian markets, in terms of hygiene, safety and fitness for human consumption. Any commercial entity involved in food manufacturing, processing, packaging and/or distributing is required to obtain an FSSAI license or registration. FSSAI is an agency of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India with headquarters in New Delhi and 8 regional offices across India, 4 referral laboratories and 72 local laboratories located throughout India. Each food handling location is required to have a separate FSSAI license. Therefore, a firm may have to obtain multiple licenses if they are operating in multiple location.

Licenses are issued at State-level and Central-level. For an annual turnover below 12 Lakhs, a basic Registration will suffice. Small businesses like restaurants, having a turnover between 12 Lakhs to 20 Crores, can make do with state license, while large-sized food manufacturers making above 20 Crores, annually need a central license for operation. Hawkers, vendors, small-scale and cottage industries, temporary stallholders etc. are exempted from the requirement of an FSSAI license or registration. The license has to be renewed periodically as per its validity and requirements of business. However it can be applied for a maximum period of 5 years.
