In present work the scientific and methodological approaches are developed together with the technical means for creation of the system of complex radioecological monitoring of environment. Implementation of such system will help in taking effective management decisions regarding prevention and overcoming of negative changes in state of the environment at the territory of Ukraine.

The achieved result is the coherent system of radioecological monitoring of environment at the governmental, regional and local levels, which is designed for solution of the main tasks of ecological safety management including management of the especially hazardous facilities.

The system is built on the basis of advanced contemporary scientific and technical achievements in the fields of radiation safety and radioecology. It is capable of defining critical sources and factors of radiological impact on personell, population and environment in regular mode of facilities’ operation as well as in case of accidents. It can also operatively estimate the processes of primary and secondary radioactive pollution of environment and forecast the doses and risks of radiation exposure of personell and population. It essentially increases level of emergency preparendess to heavy radiation accidents at the facilities of nuclear power generation and nuclear industryin Ukraine. It is capable of ensuring priority and efficiency of countermeasures in case of possible radiation accidents, first of all – at the early stage of emergency and could become the inherent part of the governmental monitoring system.

The results of this work are implemented in the work of Chernobyl, Khmelnitsky, Zaporizhje, Rivne NPPs, Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine, Center of Forecasting of Radiation Accidents of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, Crisis Centerof NNEGC “ENERGOATOM”, UkrainianHydrometeorological Centerand in the work of other state and foreign enterprizes and organizations.
