FSSAI has structured a detailed Training Policy covering each layer of its administrative force so that knowledge can be disseminated every segment evenly and in a routine manner. To achieve the purpose, FSSAI also has developed a robust ecosystem up on which the Training Policy can easily be administered.

Apart from Trainee, the other factors of the Regulatory Training Ecosystem are as follows

  • FSSAI empanelled subject matter experts for redesigning the existing Training Curriculum and Content
