This paper discusses the approaches to regulation of the content of radionuclides in commodities and compares the international and Ukrainian standards, which establish permissible levels of the content of radionuclides in food- stuffs produced in the Chornobyl-affected areas. The paper gives the actual monitoring data and discusses the main causes of differences between Ukrainian, European and international standards. The need for improvement of cur- rent approaches to the regulation of the content of radionuclides in commodities is highlighted.
Key words: regulation, acceptable levels, radionuclide content in products, food products, regulatory framework, Chornobyl accident.
