SRINAGAR: The Controller of Drugs and Food Control Organisation has asked all Food Business Operators (FBOs) to upload their licenses and seek registration by March 1.
An official handout on Wednesday said that the exercise has been necessitated in view of the commitment of the State Government with the FSSAI to introduce FLRS [Food Licensing and Registration System) in the State.
The intending and existing Food Business Operators can avail this opportunity to upload their application for renewal or grant of licenses or registration through online system.
It added that the state government is contemplating to adopt the above system in the 2nd week of March, 2016. No application for grant or renewal of license and its registration shall be entertained by the empowered authorities after the cut-off date March1.
All such FBO who fail to avail the said opportunity shall forfeit their claim to exist as a licensed/registered Food Business Operator.
The empowered authorities (Designated Officers/Food Safety Officers) have been directed to ensure strict enforcement in this regard.
