UK exporters of proprietary food items to India need certificate of analysis

in India

Trade barrier summary

This affects UK exporters of food and drink products to India. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) recently published order number 11790/FSSAI/Imports/2019, which requires a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) from an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory for proprietary food and beverage goods exported to India. This additional compliance could potentially increase the costs of the end product, and is a repetition of analysis done before the goods arrive in India.
