FSSAI Registration or License Renewal / Modification

Required for all entities involved in production, distribution &
transportation of food products.



Keeping your seal of safety intact

The validity of FSSAI registration/license extends from 1 to 5 year depending upon the number of years chosen by the food operator. The cost of the license, however, increases with the number of years which he has applied for. As per the FSSAI guidelines, you need to apply for the FSSAI License Renewal within 30 days of the expiration of the existing one.
If the renewal application is not filed within this time, then a penalty of Rs. 100 will be charged for each day of delay. If FSSAI registration/license is not renewed within its validity period, then the license is considered expired and the business operator has to stop its business activity at the premises. The business operator will have to apply for a new license if they wish to restart the business.
Therefore, it is always advisable to renew your FSSAI food license at the time which is provided in order to avoid penalties. The process of renewal of FSSAI Registration/ license is the same as the process that is to be followed for application of new FSSAI registration/ license.
