In order to dispose of the radioactive waste which generates from post-irradiation examination (PIE) facilities, the common evaluation method of radioactivity in wastes from PIE should be established by the actual data such as radioactivity values and the theoretical calculation. In this study, the radioactivity concentrations of 17 nuclides (H-3, C-14, Co-60, Ni-63, Sr-90, Tc-99, Cs-137, Eu-154, U-234, U-235, U-238, Pu-238, Pu-239, Pu-240, Pu-241, Am-241, Cm-244) in combustible wastes stored in NUCLEAR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION were measured from 3 samples and the radioactivity was calculated by ORIGEN-2 based on initial contents and operation record of the spent fuel. From the comparison of the obtained data by the radiological measurement with the calculated values, the subject to be solved for establishment of the radioactivity evaluation method for PIE was extracted.
