The derived intervention levels in Korean foodstuffs were estimated using the dynamic ingestion pathway model which was developed considering Korean environment. The derived intervention levels were estimated from the intervention level of dose based on the thyroid committed dose equivalent of infant in the case of I-131, and the whole body committed dose equivalent for age groups and 13 kinds foodstuffs in the cases of Cs-137 and Sr-90. The derived intervention levels were shown as a considerable variation with deposition time and radionuclide. The adult was the most important age group in the estimation of derived intervention levels for Cs-137 and Sr-90. In the adult, the derived intervention levels for rice were 2390 and 47 Bq/kg for Cs-137 and Sr-90 in the case of deposition in summer, respectively, and 198 and 79 Bq/kg in the case of deposition in winter, respectively.
