FSSAI stands for the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. It is the regulatory body for ensuring the safety of consumption and handling of food products in compliance with the standards and regulations set in the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. The food businesses who comply with the regulations of this act are issued a Food License by FSSAI. FBOs have to imprint the 14-digit FSSAI license number and imprint on it the FSSAI logo.

In this article, we will look at the procedure to create your FSSAI license by creating your login on the website.
Steps to Create FSSAI Login
Step 1: Log onto the website https://foodlicensing.fssai.gov.in/index.aspx.
Step 2: On the right-hand side of the website you will find a section called “Existing Users Login”. Below the “Sign In” button there is an option called “Sign Up” written in orange coloured text. Click on it and it should take you to the FSSAI login creation page called “FBO Sign Up”. The page looks like this:
Step 3: Fill up the details of your Food Business Operator (FBO). These details include Name of Applicant, Name of the Company Holding the restaurant/food business, Address of the Food business, email-id, mobile number etc. Fill up these details. Keep a convenient, easy to remember, yet secure User Id and password
Step 4: If the created username/password has an issue i.e it is already taken/ the password does not comply with regulations of the website it will show you an error message.
For eg., for me, the username was already taken and password did not have capital letters.
Step 5: Once your account is created, You will get a success message from the website. Once, you have done the FSSAI login, you are supposed to apply for a license within 30 days to avoid the disabling of the login id created creation.
Step 6: As soon as you are registered on the portal, You will receive a confirmation mail from FSSAI (email@example.com) with your login credentials make sure you keep that mail handy in case you forget your login id. However, the FSSAI website does provide a Remember Passwords option with high security.
Step 7: In addition to receiving a mail, you will also receive a text message confirming the message and thanking you for your registration.
So this was the procedure to create an account on the FSSAI website. In order to acquire a FSSAI food license, log in to your account and follow the extensive procedure given on the website.
