Specific and surface activity of nuclear waste

Dear all,

I am looking for more information how specific activity [itex] \frac{Bq}{g} [/itex] and surface activity [itex] \frac{Bq}{cm^2}[/itex] is measured. This is done to determine whether the materials of interest can be treated as harmless and disposed as usual waste. I am interested how the experimental procedure looks like. I don't know how the name is in English, but in German this is called "Freimessung" Actually one measures the activity [itex] A_i [/itex] and compares it to given limits [itex] FG_i [/itex] using sums of the form
$$
\sum_i \frac {A_i}{FG_i} < 1
$$
Thank you for your answers

Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
