Abstract: The European Commission is committed to protect the general public and the environment from undue radiological hazards. It has therefore developed a Decommissioning & Waste Management (D&WM) Programme for all nuclear sites of the Joint Research Centre (JRC). In JRC Ispra, the Nuclear Decommissioning Unit (NDU) of the Nuclear Safety and Security Directorate is in charge of activities of decommissioning and waste management to get the JRC Ispra site to the green field. This report is a deliverable of MetroDECOM II project which aim of enhancing non-destructive assay techniques and application of imaging techniques such as tomography for nuclear decommissioning and waste management activities. This report describes one of a large facility designed for the characterisation of low and intermediate nuclear waste. This facility is called Waste Characterisation System (in short WCS) and it was commissioned at the end of 2007 by the A.N Technology Ltd. (UK), i.e. ANTECH, operated for many years then interrupted for few years until the managerial decision was taken to refurbish it and put it in operation. The main parts of WCS are the two measurements stations for waste drums based on gamma spectrometry and neutrons. The gamma station operates two characterisation protocols, the segmented and tomographic scanning while the neutron station is based on passive and active neutron interrogations.
