Subject: Monitoring of food import from Japan for radioactive contamination regarding.



Sir / Madam,    


            Following the recent earthquake in Japan and concerns of possible radiation leakage from the affected nuclear plants, there is a need to increase surveillance of food imports from Japan to ensure that they are safe for consumption.

2.         Accordingly, it has been decided that Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) would test samples of food articles, particularly fresh produce exported from Japan after March 11, 2011, such as sea food, fruits, vegetables and meat for radioactive contamination. FSSAI has directed their Authorised Officers to have the food articles tested for radioactive contamination from BRIT (Board of Radiation and Isotope Technology), Navi Mumbai before issuing No Objection Certificate to Customs.

3.         In view of the above, it is directed that all officers in charge of Ports, Airports, ICDs / CFSs, Land Customs Stations should ensure that clearance of such food items imported from Japan after 11.3.2011 is allowed only after complying with the above requirements and obtaining No Objection Certificate from FSSAI.

4.          A suitable Public Notice and Standing Order may be issued for the guidance of the trade and staff.


Yours faithfully,



( R. P. Singh )

Director (Customs)
