The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on November 25, 2019, issues Direction on sampling plan of salt for the purpose of enforcement of FSS (Fortification of Foods) Regulations, 2018 which has come into force for compliance by the Food Business Operators (FBOs) from July 01, 2019. FSSAI has received several representations from salt manufacturers associations seeking exemption for enforcement of upper level of iodine content in iodized and iron-fortified salt mentioned under FSS (Fortification of Foods) Regulations, 2018.

It was recommended to frame the guidelines on sampling and enforcement of salt samples in order to prevent any harassment of FBOs in cases of non-compliance of stray samples as concerned raised by the salt manufacturers. The sampling plan for salt shall be used invariably by the Food Safety Officer for analyzing salt samples (Page 3).
