The sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the population is one of the principles of public health policy in Kazakhstan as determined by the Code of RK “On Public Health and the Health Care System”.
Compliance with sanitary and epidemiological requirements by all manufacturers of goods and services is the basis for the sanitary and epidemiological welfare of the population.
Therefore, almost every type of products produced or imported into the RK must comply with certain sanitary and epidemiological requirements as determined by various sanitary rules and hygienic norms, regulations, guidelines, methodologies, technical regulations, and standards.
In particular, sanitary and epidemiological requirements are set for:
Products for production and technical purposes
Products for household and hygienic purposes and technologies of production of such products
Food products and conditions of production, packaging, transportation, storage, sale, disposal, and destruction
For example, the Sanitary Regulations “Sanitary Requirements for the Facilities for Processing and Production of Food” specifies requirements for pasta and baking facilities and facilities for the production of tea, salt, fatty foods, frozen semi-finished goods, and other products.
These are requirements for maintenance of production and storage facilities, shops, workplaces, equipment, and facilities as well as requirements for the storage and transportation of products.
Regarding the production of beer and soft drinks in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the act “Sanitary Requirements for Facilities for Production of Beer and Soft Drinks” was adopted. For cosmetic products,“ Sanitary Requirements for Objects of Socio-Cultural and Manufacturing Perfumes and Cosmetics, and Oral Hygiene” was adopted. In respect to alcoholic beverages, there is “Health Regulations for Enterprises of Alcoholic Beverage Industry” № 4.01 .037.97. Compliance with all sanitary and epidemiological requirements guarantees stable production without risking suspension of manufactures' activities and usage of other measures of accountability.
