On October 27, 2022, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare/Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) issued a new order pertaining to FSSAI Order F. No. 1829/Health Certificate/ FSSAI/Imports (2021), which extends the effective compliance date. The new effective compliance date is now set for January 1, 2023 (the previous effective compliance date was November 1, 2022). The measure is intended to allow India’s trade partners to comply with the FSSAI’s requirement that health certificates, issued by the competent authority of the country of export, accompany imports of milk and milk products; pork and pork products; and fish and fish products. The extension, a temporary reprieve, results from comments received, and concerns raised, by World Trade Organization (WTO) members regarding the FSSAI Order of August 8, 2022, referencing the FSSAI Notification No. 1829/Health Certificate/FSSAI/Imports (2021), along with FSSAI clarification notification of September 26, 2022.
