FoSCoS Registration and Compliance is one of the major steps in F& B business.

Food businesses will now be getting only 15 days to make a request for reinstating the rejected applications under Food Safety Compliance System (FoSCoS).

The amendment in the timeline for making requests for reinstating the rejected application was to be reduced gradually and FSSAI decided that after 1st July, 2021, only 15 days will be given to the food business to make any such application.


FoSCoSThe FSSAI made provisions to make online requests for reinstating the rejected applications in FoSCoS for licences and registration in the December of 2020.

The December order said that the time period shall be progressively cut down in future to a 15 days window in compliance with the FSS Act while making provisions for online requests by food businesses for reinstating the rejected applications for FSSAI licence and registration under FoSCoS.

In accordance with the order, the request for rejected applications for registration certificate is routed to concerned designated officers while request for rejected licence application is routed to commissioner of food safety for consideration. For Central licences, the application is sent to CEO FSSAI for consideration. Upon acceptance and approval of request, the application will be reactivated.

“The present functionality is only a facility for reactivation of rejected applications. It does not have the facility to process the request, raise queries, or consider technical grounds of request and is not a process of appeal,” the order mentioned.

Earlier, a six-month window period was given to the FBOs to make an online request for re-activation of the rejected application due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Furthermore under the erstwhile FLRS system, requests were only permitted to be made to concerned authorities in the physical form after which the application was re-activated by following a standard operating methodology.
