For faster processing, FBOs told to apply for KOB licence only for products specified clearly

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has advised food businesses to apply for licence under  Kind of Business –KOB only for food product which they can specify ‘clearly’  in the licence application instead of seeking licence for multiple food products at one go.

According to the food authority, often the food business operators experience delays in processing of licence applications when they apply for licence under Manufacturer Kind of Business-KOB for multiple food products.  

“The common reason for the delay was the inability of the FBO to specify the food products clearly in the licence application. And as a result the licensing authorities have to raise multiple queries on the application with respect to some food products,” said an official with the FSSAI.

The FSSAI has issued an advisory that the FBOs can delete such food products from the licence application, for which the concerned FBO was unable to make corrections, despite the licensing authority making several queries.

“FBOs may delete such products (from the list in the licence application) so that the licence may be issued for the eligible products without any delay.  Once the licence is issued, FBO, if required may file modification of its already issued licence, with fee applicable (Rs 1,000) plus the differential fee, if any for remaining products,” reads the advisory.

FSSAI’s statement reads that this faster processing of licence application will promote ‘ease of doing business’ and the food businesses would not face any delay in issuance of licence for products found eligible as per the Food Safety and Standards Regulations.
