Strategy and Methodology for Radioactive Waste Characterization
IAEA TECDOC Series No.  1537
Over the past decade, significant progress has been achieved in the development of waste characterization as well as control procedures and equipment. This has been a direct response to ever increasing requirements for quality and reliability of information on waste characteristics. Failure in control procedures at any step can have important, adverse consequences and may result in producing waste packages which are not compliant with the waste acceptance criteria for disposal, thereby adversely impacting the repository. The information and guidance included in this publication corresponds to recent achievements and reflects the optimum approaches, thereby reducing the potential for error and enhancing the quality of the end product.
