A uranium mass assay system NWAS, for 200-litter wastes drums applied by NDA method was developed and accumulated the data of the actual uranium bearing wastes drums. The system consists of the 16 pieces of Helium-3 proportional counters for neutron detection generated from U-234($$alpha$$,n) reaction or U-238 spontaneous fissions with polyethylene moderation and a Germanium solid state detector for $$gamma$$ ray detection as to determine uranium enrichment. The satisfactory works had been continued and the uranium determination data of 850 drums had been accumulated approximately. On the other hand several considerable problems on the system or methodology had been revealed technically or analytically through the measurements experiences. Furthermore as the next improvement plans, the active neutrons assay for uranium bearing wastes drums are now progressing. The results of complications will lead us to the progressive next steps.
