Under the FSAI Act, 1998, a Closure Order is served where it is deemed that there is or there is likely to be a grave and immediate danger to public health at or in the premises; or where an Improvement Order is not complied with. Closure Orders can refer to the immediate closure of all or part of the food premises, or all or some of its activities.

Closure and Improvement Orders will remain in the reports for a period of three months from the date the order was lifted. Prohibition Orders will remain in the reports for a period of one month from the date the order was lifted.
