The present studies were conducted to monitor radioactive contamination in dairy products imported from 16 countries located in the East Europe which were affected by the Chernobyl nuclear accident. The 556 samples such as butter, cheese, ice cream, whey protein and hydrolysed milk protein products were collected randomly and determined from 1999 to 2002. All sample were below the Koeran and CODEX maximum tolerance level of radioactivity for $^{131}I$, $^{134}Cs$ and $^{137}Cs$.
