India Revises Imported Food Customs Clearance Requirements

India has amended the requirement relating to shelf life of imported product at the time of port clearance and also stressed that potassium bromate is not allowed to be used as a food additive.

On Feb. 12th, 2018, India FSSAI issued a notice on amendment to regulations on Food Safety and Standards (Import) in which:

  1. Foods that have less than 60% of the valid life remaining or are 3 months or less before expiration are not permitted custom clearance

  2. The importer shall submit a sanitary certificate from authorized agencies in the country of origin for specific categories of food (high risk) from time to time.

On the same day in another notification, FSSAI also stated again that potassium bromate cannot be used as food additive in any food.
