Abstract

In 2011 the joint research project Metrology for Radioactive Waste Management (MetroRWM).11This joint research project is financially supported by the European Commission in the frame of the European Metrology Research Programme EMRP (www.emrponline.eu) undertaken by several EU Member States under the Article 169 initiative, JRP contract identifier EMRP ENV09 MetroRWM. of the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP) started with a total duration of three years. Within this project, new metrological resources for the assessment of radioactive waste, including their calibration with new reference materials traceable to national standards will be developed.This paper gives a review on national, European and international strategies as basis for science-based metrological requirements in clearance and acceptance of radioactive waste. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
