The results from the development and the evaluation of radioactive waste monitors for small, medium, and large volumes of those wastes are presented. The efficiency calibration of monitors was made using the standard sources in point geometry as well as by using the complex calculation of the efficiency curves using the Monte Carlo simulation method. The volumetric activity sources were manufactured in the form of real 200, 400, and 700 litre barrels with matrix-fillers in order to calibrate the monitors using the direct verification method. The peculiarities of the software that controls the monitors are presented.
Key words: HPGe detector, waste assay monitor, radionuclide waste
