FSSAI Registration Renewal

If you are a Food Business Operator then, before launching a food business, you must first register with the FSSAI and if you are already a registered operator then have you noted your renewal date for it yet?

YES! You heard it right. FSSAI (Food Safety and Standard Association of India) makes the Registration mandatory obligation before you start any food business. All the manufacturers, traders, restaurants who are involved in the food business must obtain a 14-digit registration number which must be printed on food packages with the FSSAI Logo. The FSSAI registration is valid for one year, with the opportunity to extend it for up to five years. Important to note that once the validity period has expired renewing the FSSAI registration is mandatory to run the business. It is necessary to renew the FSSAI registration before it expires to maintain the business.

It may come as a shock to learn that until now, there was no mechanism for filing a renewal of the FSSAI registration once it had expired. To relaunch their operation, FBOs must apply for new registration. As a result, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India issued a new policy for renewing the FSSAI Registration after the expiry date in order to make it easier for food enterprises to continue using the same Registration number after the expiry date. The present column summarizes the steps for renewing your FSSAI registration after it has expired.

Why did the FSSAI have to refresh its regulations and implement a new procedure such as "FSSAI Registration Renewal"?

The explanation lies in the fact that the Covid-19 Pandemic has changed many things around the world, thus these changes are legitimate in light of people's changing requirements, difficulties, and ways. Due to the current state of affairs in the country, the FBOs were unable to renew their registration in the period allotted. To continue operating their food business, they needed to seek a new Registration/registration. As a result, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has announced a new policy to allow food enterprises to keep the same Registration number after it expires. According to the new policy, FBOs can now renew their FSSAI Registration/registration even if it has already expired, albeit with some restrictions.

So, if you are looking for a Renewal of your FSSAI Registration then don’t forget to be precise, faultless, and good with your documentation because messing up any of the minor things would lead to a halt of your time to gain the renewal within time resulting in the expiry of the earlier Registration making it difficult to run your busy further.
