This study investigates the design of large transport containers for intermediate level reactor decommissioning waste, i.e. waste which requires shielding. It is aimed at European requirements for both LWR and gas-cooled reactors. It proposes a design methodology for such containers covering the whole lifetime of a waste disposal package, taking account of the relevant constraints. Both large self-shielded and returnable shielded concepts are developed.
