FoSCoS FSSAI Objectives
FSSAI launched Food Safety Compliance System (“FoSCoS”) on 1st June 2020 replacing the existing online registration system of FLRS. FSSAI has currently launched FoSCoS for the States/UTs of Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Gujarat, Goa, Odisha, Manipur, De
lhi, Chandigarh and Ladakh.
Food Business Operators (“FBO”) in India must obtain FSSAI registration for the manufacturing, processing, storage, distribution and sale of food products. FSSAI registration is done online on the FSSAI website through Food Licensing and Registration System (“FLRS”).
Currently, the FBOs having License or Registration of premises at Indian Railways and concerned authorities will continue to operate at FLRS, i.e. the old FSSAI website till FSSAI makes any further announcement. The Food Business Operators (pan-India) will also continue to receive consumer grievances, and they will respond to these grievances in a time-bound manner at FLRS only until the upgraded version of the Consumer Grievance Module is developed in FoSCoS.
Objectives Of FoSCoS
Listed below are few of the objectives behind the Food Safety and Compliance system (FoSCoS)
To transform the present FLRS system, which is only a licensing platform to a central food safety compliance regulatory platform.
To build a technically advanced integrated application for achieving interoperability with other applications, capable of higher user traffic and potential for future upgrades and functionalities.
To enhance the user performance of the application and make the application process effective and simple to promote ease of doing business amongst the FBOs.
To achieve minimum physical documentation and to streamline business process flows for FBOs for online application.
To enable the application to seed business-specific details such as CIN No., PAN No. and GST No. to ensure 360 degrees profiling and validation of FBOs. FoSCoS will also be integrated with the Government of India platforms of GST, PAN, MCA etc. for this purpose.
