How to obtain Certificate of Food Safety and Standard AuthorityIf any food products are imported, a certificate of Food safety is essential at importing location of any country.

What is the purpose of certification of Food Safety and Standard?

The main purpose of inspection of Food Safety and Standards is to regulate manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of food products to ensure safe and wholesome food for human consumption, in turn the socio economic welfare of nation. Normally, once an import shipment of food products arrived at a destination customs location, the importer or his customs broker approaches the authority of Food Safety and Standard and apply for certificate of No Objection (NOC) by applying as per the authority’s requirements either in person or online. The sample of such imported food product also could be drawn as per the terms and conditions of Food Safety and Standard Authority of Importing country. However, the customs authorities at import location can decide whether such certificate of food safety clearance is required against such import of food products under such import consignment. Port Health Officer, who is an authorized Government agency can issue Food Safety Clearance certificate for import or export.

In India, certificate from FSSAI (Food Safety and Standard Authority of India) is required to be obtained by importer. FSSAI functions in five major ports who take over the functions of Port Health Officer who is responsible for certification of customs clearing goods.

Apart from Food Safety and Standard Authority, there could be other government agencies like Plant Quarantine Office, Animal Quarantine Office, and respective Laboratories to serve for safety of manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of food products to the nation.
