Protection of Public Health Regulations (Food) (Maximum permitted levels of radionuclides in foods) 5780-2020 (1 page(s), in Hebrew)
New draft regulations announced by Israel's Ministry of Health called "Protection of Public Health Regulations (Food) (Maximum permitted levels of radionuclides in foods) 5780-2020", that will replace relevant similar guidelines. These regulations determine that nobody shall produce, import, or sell food originated from an area were a nuclear accident or any other case of radiological emergency had occurred and set the following:
· Sets the maximum concentration allowed (Bq/kg) of 4 groups of radionuclides in food products and in ready-to-feed food products for infants;
· Determines that food product contaminated with more than one type of radionuclides, the sum of all radionuclides must comply with the maximum permitted level of the group.
The Public Health Protection Act (Food) stipulates that any directive and procedure instruction of The National Food Service, setting out safety and quality requirements for food, published on the website on the eve of the commencement of this Act shall continue to apply and be regarded as "Food Regulations" until regulations are enacted to replace them.
