The periods when interim regulatory values are applied as interim measures were specified for some of the items.

Standard Limits


Interim measures


The interim regulatory value of 500Bq/kg, which was set by the national government, was applied for rice and beef until September 30, 2012 and for soybeans until December 31, 2012. These items of food, which were produced in Fukushima Prefecture and which exceed the standard limits, have been handled as items exceeding the standard limits in the monitoring information search results since April 1, 2012, because the distribution and sales of these items are not to be undertaken.
