The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India has issued an advisory with approval of competent authorities regarding the requirement of AGMARK certification in case of imported food products.
The apex body of food safety has drawn reference to the advisory issued vide letter no 1– 1800/ FSSAI /Imports 2019 dated 7th July 2020 regarding requirement of AGMARK certification prior to import of blended edible vegetable oil (BEVO).
In case of imported food products FSSAI has received several representations from various stakeholders asking for clarity in terms of applicability of requirement of AGMARK certifications.
Significantly, DMI has taken up the entire matter and it has been apprised that foreign country/overseas certification under Agricultural Produce(Grading and Marking) Act 1937 is not being carried out by DMI. Consequently, it was agreed to keep the requirement of AGMARK certification for imported food consignments in abeyance till further orders.
