An FBO must stay away from hiring any person who is suffering from any infectious or contagious disease.

An FBO cannot sell any food product to any other FBO unless he also gives a guarantee, in writing in the form specified by FSSAI, about the nature and quality of the product.

Unless it is followed by a detailed assessment within a specified time, the food consignment would be considered unsafe and it is to be destroyed as per regulations.
