Radioactive waste is any radioactive source or any object contaminated with radionuclide’s, which is not foreseen for further use. This waste arises from a number of activities involving the use of radioactive material. The classification of the radioactive waste as general rule is based in their long term safe management. From the other part classification of the radioactive waste is necessary to provide a common base for development of the different aspects related with its conceptual and operational level, technical management, communication and other issues. The classification scheme is mainly based on safety considerations for the lifetime of the waste and can be applied for all waste management practices such as segregation, treatment, conditioning, interim storage and final disposal. A conceptual illustration of the waste classification scheme we presented in figure, and shows the waste classes into which different types of sealed radioactive sources described in Table, the criteria for exempted radioactive materials are defined in IAEA Basic Safety Standards. The radioactive waste that is generated into mentioned practices varied in form, activity concentration and type of contamination as it is in type of generating action.
