Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has announced the launch of its cloud based food safety compliance online platform. The platform will be called ‘Food Safety Compliance System (FoSCoS)," as per the statement released by the FSSAI.

The new online platform is launched for granting licenses and registration to food business operators, and regulatory compliances. “FSSAI is launching its cloud based, upgraded new food safety compliance online platform called Food Safety Compliance System & FoSCoS”, announced the food regulator.  The new URL for the new portal, i.e., foscos.fssai.gov.in, will be replacing the old portal ‘foodlicensing.fssai.gov.in’.

Since 2011, Food Licensing and Registration System, FSSAI’s online licensing platform, has issued 70 lakh licenses or registrations so far. Among them, 35 lakhs licensees/registrants are active users and are transacting on it on a regular basis.

With the new platform, FSSAI aims at providing one stop solution for all the engagement of an FBO with the department for any regulatory compliance transaction. “A single regulatory platform will enable pan India integrated response system to any food fraud and ensure an advanced risk based, data driven regulatory approach. Initially, FoSCoS will offer licensing, registration, inspection and annual return modules. The platform has been integrated with its mobile app and will be linked with other IT platforms,” said FSSAI.
