The first and foremost measure in the renewal of FSSAI license is to file Form A in case of basic FSSAI registration or Form B in case of central or state FSSAI license with the signatures of the authorized signatory. These are the primary forms consisting of the business activities of the food operator which are expected to be filled along with the self-attested declaration that a food business operator is required to comply with the guidelines of the Food Safety and Standards Act. Besides, a photo identity proof such as Aadhaar Card, Driving License or Voter Identity Card is also required to be attached.
The application for renewal must be accompanied by an audit report or Food Safety Management System Plan, or Certificate regarding food safety management system has to be filed.
Form IX i.e. form of the nomination of persons by the company has to be filed in the prescribed format.
After receiving the application for FSSAI renewal along with all the necessary documents, the authorities would then examine the application and if necessary, could also arrange for an inspection at the premises of the food business operator in order to make sure that all the details provided regarding the particular food business are true and reliable, and all the information have been disclosed and submitted.
After successful inspection of the business undertakings by the authorities, if they are satisfied, then they issue a license in favour of the food business operator.
It needs only 60 days for the food license to reach the food business operator. If more than 60 days have passed and the food business operator has not received the license, then it can resume its business without waiting for any further notice or communication on their part.
