A food business operator who is involved in food related activities like manufacturing, storage, transportation, and distribution of food products approaches to FSSAI for approval of its application that helps him acquire FSSAI Registration or license. Thus it makes an FBO more accountable for his business.
If an FBO requires registration or license depends upon the annual turnover of the business.
The approval from FSSAI can take the following forms:
A petty FBO should register with FSSAI as it doesn’t require license. There are separate criteria that defines an entity as a petty operator, especially those who manufacture food products. FSSAI basic registration is required by an entity that has an annual turnover of less than 12 lakhs rupees. Apart from this, there are other two licenses required- State and Central.
Like petty FBOs, entities having an annual turnover between 12 lakh rupees to 20 crore rupees apply for this license. In reality, it is a medium sized FBO. The license is valid for 1 year minimum and a maximum of 5 years. The tenure of issuance is by the nourishment business administrator.
Large FBOs are required to apply for this license. These are entities that have an annual turnover of more than 20 crore rupees and function in two or more states. Importers and exporters are exclusively required to apply for this license. The license is valid for 1 year minimum and a maximum of 5 years. The tenure of issuance is by the nourishment business administrator.
Just filing the FSSAI application form and submitting the same doesn’t guarantee you the FSSAI registration or license. There are instances where the applications may be rejected. On July 7, 2020, FSSAI had published a standard operating procedure for the reactivation of rejected applications. It provided for four cases of rejection of application for registration or license that would be considered by it.
These cases include the following:
Reactivation for Registration or State license
The following steps can be followed by applicants:
Reactivation for Central FSSAI License
Along with the procedure of reactivation of rejected FSSAI application, FSSAI also brought out the Standard Operating Procedure for change in User profile like login credentials, email id, mobile number, etc.
The procedure is as follows:
It may be noted that the requests will be considered by the Regulatory Compliance Division and sent to the IT team. IT division shall verify the credentials of the firm and update the user ID profile and communicate to the applicant under intimation to the Regulatory Compliance Division.
It is reiterated that just filling the FSSAI application form and submitting the same doesn’t guarantee you the FSSAI registration or license. It may be rejected on not fulfilling the conditions and requirements. However, FSSAI has issued the SOP for reactivating rejected application that allows you to reactivate the application in case of some above-mentioned instances.
