FSSAI Registration and License Document Application Checklist - LegalDocs

FSSAI License Checklist

According to the Food Safety and Standards Act, an FSSAI registration is mandatory for all food business operators. This registration must be obtained through the FSSAI Food Licensing and Registration System. When applying for this license, keep a document checklist handy for ease.

Documents Required for FSSAI Registration

Here are the documents to be compulsorily submitted:

  • Application in Form A signed by the proprietor/authorised signatory of the enterprise

  • Certificate of incorporation or partnership deed or memorandum and articles of association

  • Photo Identity of Food Business Operator (FBO) i.e. of the proprietor/authorised signatory of the enterprise such as Voter ID card, driving license, passport, PAN card, Aadhar card

  • Specific details about the food products which the enterprise produces

  • Management plan in place for food and  health safety

  • Proof of office and factory/unit premises occupancy, whether possession certificate or rental agreement

  • Any other supporting documents such as a No Objection Certificate (NOC) issued by the local health department, panchayat or municipality

Where to File

The FSSAI registration may be initiated online by submitting an application in Form A to the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India on their website. The department analyses the application and supporting documents. The final decision about granting registration is communicated to the applicant within seven days from the online filing date in writing. If the application has been accepted, the FSSAI will grant a certificate of registration which states the registration number and displays the photo of the applicant.

Things to Remember

A couple of important things to remember. It is mandatory for an FBO to display the FSSAI certificate prominently at the place of business. All small businesses in the food sector need to mandatorily apply for this basic FSSAI registration.
