JOINT FAO/WHO CODEX ALIMENTARIUS COMMISSION<br />GUIDELINE LEVELS FOR RADIONUCLIDES IN FOODS <br />TRADED INTERNATIONALLY (CODEX STANDARD 193-1995)<br />www.codexalimentarius.net<br />* When intended for use as such.<br />** This represents the value for organically bound sulphur. <br />*** This represents the value for organically bound tritium.<br />Scope: The Guideline Levels apply to radionuclides contained in foods destined for human consumption and traded internationally, which have been contaminated following a nuclear or radiological emergency. These guideline levels apply to food after reconstitution or as prepared for consumption, i.e., not to dried or concentrated foods, and are based on an intervention exemption level of 1 mSv in a year.<br />
