Now only 15 days to restore rejected applications under FoSCoS

Food companies now only have 15 days to submit an application to reinstate the rejected applications under the Food Safety Compliance System (FoSCoS).

The revision of the schedule for reinstatement of the rejected application should be gradually reduced and the FSSAI decided that after July 1, 2021, the food business would only have 15 days to file such an application.

The FSSAI made arrangements in December last year to file online applications to reinstate the rejected applications in FoSCoS for licenses and registration.

The decree of December stipulated that the deadline according to the FSS Act should be gradually reduced to a window of 15 days in the future and at the same time provisions for online applications from food companies to reinstate the rejected applications for FSSAI license and registration under FoSCoS to be hit.

According to the order, the application for rejected license applications will be forwarded to the relevant competent officials, while the application for rejected license applications will be forwarded to the Food Safety Commissioner for review. For Central licenses, the application is sent to CEO FSSAI for review. After the request has been accepted, the application is reactivated.

“The current functionality is just one way of reactivating rejected applications. It does not have the ability to process the request, to make inquiries or to consider technical reasons for the request, and it is not a procedure for compensation, ”says the order.

Previously, the FBOs were given a six-month window to submit an online application to reactivate the application that was rejected due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the former FLRS system, inquiries to the authorities concerned could only be made in physical form, after which the application was reactivated according to a standard procedure.
