FICCI study on implementation of food safety and standards act: an industry perspective

Industry anxiously awaits implementation of Food Safety and Standards Act. Various features of the Act raise the hopes of the industry that inspector-raj will come to an end leading to speedy and fair resolution of cases and disputes. All FSSA activities under progress must be shared with the industries in view of the fact that they are expected to implement the Act. Since the tiny, small and medium scale industries do not have the technical expertise to track the regulatory changes, they will find it difficult to identify the procedural and compliance changes brought in by the Act.
