This report, in three volumes, describes work carried out on the development of a radioactive waste package assay facility for cemented 500 litre intermediate level waste drums. In Volume I the reasons for the assay are considered, together with the various techniques that can be used, and the information that can be obtained. The practical problems associated with the use of the various techniques in an integrated assay facility are identified, and the key parameters defined. Engineering and operational features are examined and provisional designs proposed for facilities at three throughput levels - 15,000, 750 and 30 drums per year respectively.
