One of the most important requirements for the work of public catering enterprises is the release of benign, epidemically flawless products. This can only be achieved if certain requirements for the operation of the catering business are fully met. These requirements are set forth in various regulatory documents, instruction letters, recommendations, etc. The most important regulatory document, which sets out the basic requirements for the work of public catering enterprises in the sanitary-hygienic sense, is the sanitary-hygienic standards “Sanitary rules for public catering enterprises, including confectionery shops and enterprises producing soft ice cream” (SanPiN 42-123 -5777-91). This regulatory document specifies the requirements for the territory, water supply and sewerage, the microclimate of industrial premises, heating, ventilation, lighting, design and maintenance of the premises of public catering facilities. A significant amount of this document is occupied by the requirements for equipment, implements, containers and utensils and used in catering, transportation, reception and storage of food; processing of raw materials and the production of catering products; distribution of dishes and the release of semi-finished products and culinary products. The “Sanitary Rules ...” also provides for a number of other requirements for perfect work in the sanitary aspect of public catering enterprises: measures to control insects and rodents, sanitary requirements for personal hygiene of personnel, requirements for working conditions.

Given the special epidemic danger of the production of confectionery and soft ice cream, sanitary requirements for these industries are highlighted in separate sections.

According to the sanitary legislation of Ukraine, these sanitary rules are subject to flawless implementation at all public catering enterprises, and the responsibility for non-compliance with sanitary rules is assigned to the heads of public catering enterprises, production managers, each employee of the public catering company.
Based on the foregoing, it can be determined that the sanitary regime is the unconditional fulfillment by each employee of a public catering enterprise of all the requirements set forth in the said sanitary rules.

In order to prevent the occurrence of acute acute intestinal and food poisoning, to conduct effective routine sanitary surveillance of catering establishments on the basis of the “Sanitary Rules for Catering Establishments ...”, scientific and epidemiological “risk factors” in public catering have been developed by scientists at the Department of Food Hygiene at Donetsk Medical University . According to these recommendations, 19 complex “risk factors”, which are combined into 5 groups, are conditionally allocated in public catering. Each complex “risk factor” and each group of factors as a whole are evaluated in points. Each “risk factor”, depending on its significance, is assessed in the range from 1 to 20 points, and the group - from 10 to 50 points (table 1).

Subject to all sanitary-hygienic and sanitary-anti-epidemic rules and norms set forth in the "Sanitary Rules ..." catering is estimated at 100 points.

The sum of the points determines the sanitary-epidemic risk group: group A (high risk) - less than 80 points; group B (moderate risk) from 81 to 90 points; group C (low risk) - 91 to 100 points.

The attribution of the enterprise to group A and B indicates that the sanitary regime is not fully observed at the public catering enterprise, which necessitates the adoption of certain measures by the sanitary service.
