Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The basic objective of the programme of monitoring the dietary exposure in the Czech Republic is to describe the character of the health risk based on the exposure of the Czech population to chemical substances in food. The conception of the monitoring programme is based on the methods of the Total Diet Study, established on the principle of defining the consumption of the most important foodstuffs, their purchase in the network of stores in selected shops on fixed dates, their transport to the central laboratory, cooking and consequent chemical analyses in the central laboratories. In the Czech Republic monitoring has been conducted since 1991/1992 and routine activities have been ongoing since 1994. The programme is fully sponsored by the government. Monitoring carried out in 1994-2001 provided a considerable amount of information, which was applied when drawing programmes of health protection and promotion, in regulatory work and when solving problems of the international food trade.
