Importance The article addresses a functional model of the system of State regulation of foreign trade activities as a formalized management process. Objectives The aim is to reveal the specifics of arrangement and operation of the modern system of State regulation of foreign trade activities through developing a generalized functional model that reflects the system's structure, the nature of its relations, and characteristic aspects of the regulatory process. Methods The input data of the study include literature on the analysis of certain aspects of foreign trade function. The study employs systems approach, synthesis, logical analysis, elements of management theories, and automatic control. Results We offer a generalized functional model of the system of State regulation of foreign trade activities and analyze its processes. We found that State regulation is a multiparameter nonlinear adaptive system with case-related control, and show that the system's adaptivity is of level nature. The most significant factor in determining the quality of regulation is the regulator's relations with the arrangement of control, which, unlike technical systems, is other than a hardware component. Conclusions and Relevance To improve the quality and reliability of the system of State regulation of foreign trade activities, it is important to correlate the parameters of setting actions with the capabilities of foreign trade activity participant.
