The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), on September 17, 2018, has introduced the Draft Revision of the General Principles of Food Hygiene: Good Hygiene Practices (GHPs) And The Hazard Analysis And Critical Control Point (HACCP) System. The proposed Draft Revision aims to:

        provide principles and guidance on the application of good hygiene practices applicable throughout the food chain to provide food that is safe and suitable for consumption;

        provide the basis on which sector- and product-specific codes of practice are established

The proposed Draft Revision provides a framework of general principles for producing safe and suitable food for consumption by outlining necessary hygiene and food safety conditions to be implemented in production, manufacturing, preparation, storage, distribution and transport of food, including primary production, and where appropriate, specific food safety control measures at certain steps throughout the food chain.
