FSSAI now notifies 20 referral labs in total

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has notified 20 referral laboratories. The number has increased from 13 initially to 17 and now 20 labs were conferred the ‘referral lab’ tag.

The role of referral lab comes after the FBO (food business operator) files an appeal against the testing results of a ‘sample’ by the primary food testing lab.

The list of 20 FSSAI notified Referral Food Laboratories along with their FSSAI Registration Number and corresponding Gazette Notification has been released by the FSSAI.

Previously, the food authority had also clarified that the referral laboratory cannot test a ‘sample’ of the food product in question, if it has done testing of the same sample as a primary laboratory. The lab can only perform one function of a primary laboratory or referral lab, for a single sample.

There are  many food laboratories notified by the FSSAI that perform dual roles of primary as well as referral laboratory and the appeal against the primary testing results, cannot be entertained by the same laboratory as referral lab.
