The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India on 18th November 2022, has notified that all non-complaint labels on imported food consignment may be permitted for rectification at port itself in order to facilitate ease of trade while ensuring the safety of food imported into India.

This rectification has to be carried out at Customs bound warehouses, before visual inspection or re-inspection by the Authorised Officer or his representative, by affixing a single non detachable sticker or by any other non-detachable method.

The Authorized Officer/his representative shall verify the label compliance during visual inspection and the consignment shall be subject to sampling and testing only if it is compliant on labelling requirements as per the FSS Regulations.
