FSSAI Launches Online Platform for bringing transparency in Inspection and Sampling
FSSAI has instructed states to use web based inspection platform to bring transparency in inspection and sampling. The web-based ‘FoSCoRIS’ system will help to verify compliance of food safety and hygiene standards in real time and as per the government norms. It will include instant geo-tagging, time stamping, real-time data collection and multiple levels of verification and can be used via hand-held devices like mobile phones and tablets.
The data collected from inspection reports and samples can then be analyzed to understand the areas and food products to be focused on, identify hot-spots, trends and pattern in food safety to take corrective measures and for policy interventions. “This will also help assess the performance of field level officers and help improve their efficiency,”
