The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on December 20, 2022, introduced a new Kind of Business (KoB) and inspection checklist for Fish and Fish Products under FoSCoS for License. Earlier there was no separate Kind of Business (KoB) for Manufacturers of Fish and Fish products and these products were licensed either under General manufacturing or Meat processing KoB.
In view of the above, the Authority has decided to introduce a new KoB for ‘Fish and Fish Products’. Accordingly, the inspection checklist, applicable to such manufacturers, to inspect these units on specified parameters, has been developed. This has come into the effect from December 18, 2022.
