Rospotrebnadzor has developed new sanitary and epidemiological requirements for stores. The changes will affect food trade. The introduced norms should prevent the spread of infections in the future.

According to the draft decree of the chief sanitary doctor, published on the website of the regulatory legal acts of Russia, the new requirements should prevent the occurrence and spread of infectious and non-infectious diseases. Now it is proposed to present special requirements to the placement of outlets, to sales of certain types of products and to sellers themselves.

So, in the houses it is proposed to ban the placement of specialized fish shops. Markets and individual retail facilities should be remote from residential buildings. Above the open shopping areas, there must be a canopy from the sun and precipitation.

It may not be possible to weigh products without packaging, to sell goods that have fallen on the floor or to be contaminated, and to pack goods in a vacuum. Eggs are offered to be sold only in departments where only packaged products that are not ready for consumption are sold. Frozen convenience foods can only be sold in their original packaging.

Stores will not be able to accept for sale products in contaminated packaging, leaky and deformed cans with canned goods, eggs with contaminated shells and vices. Raw milk can be sold with an inscription on the need for boiling it. And watermelons and melons can be banned from selling in cut form.

 Pets and birds may also be subject to new bans - it is unacceptable to keep them in stores.
Workers will have to undergo a physical examination at least twice a year. Before work, you will need to wash your hands with soap and water, wear special clothing, and if signs of a cold, bowel problems, suppuration, cuts, burns appear, inform the administration. At the same time, it will be necessary to report not only about your ailments, but also about all cases of intestinal infections in the employee's family.

Special requirements are being developed for communal infrastructure. At points of sale there should always be drinking water, separate sinks for containers and equipment, and a separate sewage system from a residential building. Ventilation should be designed in such a way as to exclude air pollution in other rooms, be separate from the ventilation of a residential building or office building. In this case, ventilation in warehouses with food products should be separated from the non-food warehouse.

 Also, Rospotrebnadzor offers to provide tents, kiosks and other objects of small retail sale of hand-washing sinks. In an extreme case, such facilities should have a toilet within walking distance.
