Every food business operator must register with FSSAI if they are involved in the manufacturing, processing, storage, distribution and sale of food products.

FSSAI registration is different from the FSSAI license in that FBO should get the necessary registration or license for their business.

All the food packages have a license number printed on them. The producer's permit is given with the 14 digit registration number.

The purpose of this registration procedure is to create more accountability on the FBO to maintain the quality of the food products. Food Safety & Standards (Licensing and registration of food business) Regulations, 2011, regulate the licensing and registration procedure.

The following kinds of business are required for the FSSAI registration to be obtained.

Depending on eligibility criteria, the types of FSSAI licenses required by each of the above businesses are different. The FSSAI has eligibility criteria for each kind of business.

FSSAI registration is based on turnover and capacity of production. Basic license, central license, and state license are available for the installed capacity and turnover of the FBOs.

The FBO must have a turnover of at least Rs 12 lakh to apply for a state license.

Other conditions include dairy units handling up to 5000 liters of business per day, and manufacturing units with a capacity of 2 million units per day. Catering businesses regardless of their turnover need to apply for the license. The maximum tenure of the license is 5 years and the minimum is 1 year.
