Lengthy registration for exported food and drink products not listed by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India
Trade barrier summary
This affects UK exporters of food and drink products to India. Registration for food and drink goods is needed if the product is not covered under the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) product listing. Registration is not harmonised with the UK's approach. The goods also need to go through high-level sampling for each variant of the product. Registration can be lengthy and costly, especially if goods are perishable products, and if there are not enough laboratories for testing.
