On June 17, 2022, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare MoHFW)/Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) issued direction F. No: STD/SP_08/A1.2022/N-01-Part (1) to operationalize the draft Food Safety and Standards (Labeling and Display) Amendment Regulations (2022). The amendments proposed in the now operationalized draft pertain to the labeling of non-retail containers, with the FSSAI incorporating recommendations from Codex. The proposed amendment regulations, although now put into operation by the FSSAI (food authority), are still under the MoHFW's (line ministry) review and pending approval. The FSSAI took the measure to implement the draft Food Safety and Standards (Labeling and Display) Regulations (2022) effective July 1, 2022, to align this implementation date with mandatory compliance requirements of the directive F. No. REF/L&D-Extension/FSSAI-2021, which itself extends the implementation date for Food Safety and Standards (Labeling and Display) Regulations (2020).
