The terms FSSAI license and FSSAI registration do not mean the same, as these terms would be determined based on the size of the business. Every business dealing in food products would have to go for an online FSSAI registration.
Previously the registration process for FSSAI was conducted online through Food Licensing and Registration System (FLRS). the Food Safety and Compliance System (FosCos) has replaced the previous system (FLRS). This is an important update which is required to be adhered to.
