FBOs having establishments within the seaport and airport premises have to get their licenses issued by the respective notified DO. If the DO isn’t notified, then the licenses will be issued by the Central Licensing Authority.
Also, the FBOs who already have the licenses issued by the state district officer, they will have to surrender their licenses and renew it from the respective DO at the seaport. While doing this, only the renewal charges will be applied and not the modification charges.

As the conventional practice of sending out the License/Registration certificates to the FBOs through couriers seemed problematic, FSSAI issued a new standard. FSSAI has issued a new rule of sending the approved license certificates through mails to avoid any delay and delivery problems. There will be a standard sentence at the end of the mail stating –This is a computer generated License/Registration certificate and does not require the signatures of License/Registration Authorities, according to the FSSAI News.
