As part of the efforts to get satisfaction for food companies, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India started the Food Safety Compliance System. FSSAI announced that FoSCoS shall replace the Food Licensing and Registration System (FLRS). In this article, we shall unveil this brand new concept of FoSCoS.

This is an enhanced version of the food licensing and registration system that was launched in 2012 for the purpose of issuing pan-India FSSAI licenses and registration. It evolved incrementally and organically with changing regulatory requirements. The technology used to build it was outdated, with no technical support available.
There were many occasions when users complained of slow speed of Food Licensing, and Registration System and software experts resisted new changes on FLRS, thereby impeding any improvement further or any expansion or any innovation in the licensing system. Therefore the need to change from FLRS to FoSCoS was necessary.
It is built with the the latest cutting-edge technology with a view to have a modern one-stop platform for food safety regulatory needs. It is conceptualized as the umbrella system and is integrated with the FSSAI’s other extant IT platforms like the Food Safety Compliance through regular inspection and sampling, adjudications and penalties, Indian Food Laboratory Network, Audit Management System, Food Safety Mitra, Food Safety Training, etc.
These integrations shall be done in the future until FoSCoS evolves fully from a licensing platform to a unified compliance platform. It has a robust architecture which is capable of future extensions and enhancements.
FoSCoS will be integrated with other platforms of the Indian Government like GST, PAN, MCA, etc., to ease out the processes for businesses and ensure a 360-degree business profiling.
The overall objective can be summarized as follows:
The following are the new features of FoSCoS:
The following services are provided to FBOs:
The food business operator, for using FoSCoS application, may either create sign up using the unique mobile ID and e-mail ID or use the same login details as used for FLRS.
The FBOs may follow the following guidelines to register in FoSCoS:
For registration of petty FBOs-
For new application (FSSAI Registration/License)-
The process of applying for food business registration is same as FLRS with minimal changes. After logging in to the portal, the dashboard will be displayed. Click on the license/registration option and select “apply for new license/registration.”
Select the head office as KoB details and choose appropriate kind of business applications according to the food business to be conducted. It may be noted that the user should submit the details in Form B.
The Food Safety Compliance System is expected to enhance the performance of the user of the application and make the process of application simpler as well as efficient in order to bring ease of doing business among FBOs.
