The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on April 15, 2019 issues direction regarding the requirement of FSSAI licenses at State or City wise sub-offices of e-commerce FBOs. According to the FSS (Licensing and Registration of Food Business) Amendment Regulation, 2018, all E-commerce FBOs are required to obtain central license from the concerned Central Licensing Authority. However various stakeholders requested for clarification regarding issuance of license.

The following has been decided:

•The state or city-wise sub-offices of E-commerce FBOs, where no food business activities are being carried out as defined under clause 3(n) of FSS Act, 2006, which specifies the definition of ‘food business’, do not require FSSAI license.

•All E-commerce FBOs should maintain the record of their State or City wise sub-offices and a copy of FSSAI license issued to E-commerce FBO shall be displayed at the prominent place in the premises of said sub-offices.
