Manufacturers, Repackers, and Relabellers to Upload Mandatory Lab Testing Reports on FOSCoS six monthly.
In a significant move to enhance transparency and ensure the safety of food products, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has mandated that manufacturers, repackers, and relabellers must upload or link their mandatory laboratory testing reports on the Food Safety Compliance System (FOSCoS) platform six monthly.
This development comes as part of the FSSAI’s continuous efforts to strengthen food safety regulations and streamline compliance measures across the country.
The FSSAI, as the apex regulatory body for food safety in India, recognizes the importance of robust testing procedures in assuring the quality and safety of food products available to consumers. By requiring manufacturers, repackers, and relabellers to upload or link their lab testing reports on FOSCoS, the authority aims to create a centralized and easily accessible repository of crucial information regarding food product testing.
Under the new mandate, manufacturers, repackers, and relabellers will be obliged to submit their lab testing reports on FOSCoS every six months. This process will enable FSSAI officials, state authorities, and consumers to access and review the reports to ensure compliance with safety standards. Furthermore, the initiative is expected to streamline regulatory processes and minimize delays associated with manual document verification.
FOSCoS, an online platform developed by the FSSAI, serves as a comprehensive system for food safety compliance. It facilitates the efficient monitoring and evaluation of various compliance measures, including licensing, registration, inspection, and enforcement. With the inclusion of mandatory lab testing reports, FOSCoS will now provide a centralized repository of crucial data, enabling authorities to monitor the safety and quality of food products more effectively.
By implementing this new requirement, the FSSAI aims to enhance transparency in the food industry and strengthen consumer confidence in the products they consume. Access to lab testing reports will empower consumers to make informed decisions and choose products that meet their quality and safety expectations. Moreover, it will encourage manufacturers, repackers, and relabellers to prioritize adherence to food safety standards and take necessary measures to rectify any non-compliance issues.
The FSSAI has urged all relevant stakeholders, including manufacturers, repackers, and relabellers, to familiarize themselves with the new mandate and ensure compliance within the stipulated timelines. Failure to upload or link the lab testing reports on FOSCoS may result in penalties and other enforcement actions as per the Food Safety and Standards Act.
In conclusion, the FSSAI’s latest directive mandating manufacturers, repackers, and relabellers to upload or link their lab testing reports six monthly on FOSCoS marks a significant step towards enhancing food safety and transparency. The inclusion of these reports on the centralized platform will facilitate better monitoring, evaluation, and compliance of food safety standards, ultimately benefiting consumers and fostering a culture of accountability within the food industry.
