The main tasks and main stages for implementing the radioecological monitoring system in the vicinity of nuclear fuel cycle facilities are presented. The principles for performing the radioecological monitoring are determined. To improve the efficiency and quality of work in the implementation of projects on radioecological research of the territory, there is a need to develop algorithms for implementing programs of radiation-ecological monitoring and its application in the environmental monitoring system, including the assessment and forecast of changes in indicators of this state. The authors have developed the algorithm of investigations in the framework of environmental radioecological monitoring in the region where nuclear and radiation hazardous facilities are located. A set of independent algorithms has been elaborated for each stage of work, describing the order of actions during conducting radiation and environmental monitoring. The paper presents the conceptual outline for realizing the radioecological monitoring program. The elements of the effective work within the framework of contaminants control in the components of ecosystems and radiation safety assurance of humans and biota are identified. The authors have developed an approach, whereby the researcher has the opportunity to properly organize the sequence of actions to create a network of radioecological monitoring, performing field and cameral work.
