Idea of development similar evaluation method of safety food products appeared in the United States of America in 60`s of last century at NASA and some military scientific and research centers for identification of toxins in food which led to spacemen`s diseases. Over the years in 1971 at American National Conference regarding on safety food products, company Pillsbury proposed to see developed HACCP methodology. But in 80`s the Academy of Science of USA proposed to implement this method for compliance in food industry. Strong support in development HACCP program, as global standard of control food products production, conducted the Commission of Codex Alimentarius. In 1991 at 25th meeting of Committee has been approved «HACCP main conditions and the procedure of their execution». In sense, committee approved the HACCP Codex and proposed bring the obligate requirements for food products. In the territory of European Union, there is guideline about general conditions 93/43/ «Hygienic of food products» that regiment the HACCP principles. The compliance of HACCP requirements became obligatory from 14th 1995 for members of EU. Other countries also approved and implemented HACCP methodology through normative, legislative and regular acts. Therefore, nowadays the system of control for products quality approved by almost all world countries, International commission of microbiologic indicators of safety food products and World Health Organization.

Researches of HACCP International show that annually in the world there are approximately fifty millions events of food intoxication. For that negligence the one part of producers have been penalized, and another one – put into the court. Such cases negatively influenced on producer`s reputation, value of their trademarks and client`s loyalty. It means that implementation of HACCP program prescribes strict limits in food production, their circulation and storage.
Regarding the HACCP certification, it is necessary to review the objective of this methodology. Therefore, the main goal of HACCP is hazards identification and management, reduction risks of food spoiling through the development and implementation of HACCP program. The producers and suppliers of products that are under HACCP control can be sure in not only products quality and safety, but in that, they form strong market platform in food industry.
