State monitoring of food products safety is laboratory research carried out on an everyday basis to monitor compliance with the content of chemical pollutants in it with legally established permissible levels. Priority is given to the most significant types of pollutants of food products and food raw materials, namely toxic elements, veterinary drugs, pesticides. To study and solve certain problems of food safety, related, in particular, to the local unfavorable environmental situation in the regions, as well as that of the use of less common types of products, targeted research is needed. The article formulates suggestions on the criteria and procedure for conducting such research, using the example of projects of the Russian State Center for Animal Feed and Drug Standardization and Quality (FSBI "VGNKI") to study the content of dioxins and heavy metals in venison and eggs. An increase in the effectiveness of state monitoring through targeted research was demonstrated.
