Abstract

It is known that the food security of the state, aimed at providing the population with quality and healthy food, is an important component of economic security. Recent developments in the world and national security challenges posed by the Covid-19 virus pandemic necessitate a reassessment of approaches to the legal regulation of issues that significantly affect human health. Today, the reform of the relevant national legislation on FAR residues in food requires a systematic and holistic approach and the definition of its priorities in such a way as to promote food safety and the development of domestic business. The article is devoted to the analysis of the current Ukraine legislation concerning regulation of residues of veterinary medicinal products in foodstuffs of animal origin. It was shown that the formation of such legislation was due to the development of international trade, including the fulfilment of the European Union requirements for the safety of foodstuffs imported into its market. At the same time, the conclusion of the Association Agreement and the introduction of a Free trade zone with the EU was a significant impetus to the reforming of national legislation on residues. The analysis of EU regulations, which serves as a legal basis for the residues control at the EU level, was carried out. It is noted that today in the Ukrainian legislation, despite the introduction of annual national plans for state monitoring of residues of veterinary medicinal products and contaminants in live animals and unprocessed foodstuffs of animal origin, there are a number of gaps that require urgent legislative regulation. It was proved that the completion of the reform of the national legislation on residues will contribute to improving safety of domestic foodstuffs, and therefore, will have important positive consequences not only for the development of trade with the EU, but primarily for the food security of Ukraine and the protection of the health of Ukrainian citizens.
