Determination of radioactivity levels and recommendations for the exemption of radioactive waste arising outside the nuclear fuel cycle
The present study aimed to propose radioactivity levels below which low activity waste arising from hospitals and research facilities may follow the same disposal routes as normal refuse. After a description of the current management of this type of waste in France, a methodology is presented which evaluates the radioactivity limits which render such waste acceptable for normal disposal facilities. These limits are determined following realistic exposure scenarios for the workers and the population concerned. Together with these proposed limits, recommendations are made to ensure that criteria for the transfer to the public domain are not violated by producers.
