In the revised German Radiation Protection Ordinance (StrlSchV), the release of radioactive waste is comprehensively regulated. The ”unrestricted release“ in this case is especially important for the disposal of temporary stored, short-life nuclear medicine radio-nuclides. This waste can be disposed as normal waste, if they fall below the nuclide-specific release limit value of specific activity listed in the StrlSchV.
With the release counter FMS, radioactive waste containers can be measured in a reproducible way and the measuring results can be documented according to the license. Carrying out release measurements significantly reduces the disposal costs which come up.
