Abstract

A detailed methodology is presented for the identification of the characteristics of commercial nuclear waste which may require criteria. This methodology is analyzed as a six-step process which begins with identification of waste operations and proceeds unitl the waste characteristics affecting the potenital release of radionuclides are determined. All waste types and operations were analyzed using the methodology presented. Several illustrative examples are included. It is found that thirty-three characteristics can be identified as possibly requiring criteria.
