Radioactive waste produced in Italy belongs to two main categories according to production routes. These are radioactive waste generated from the nuclear fuel cycle and those radioactive waste deriving from non-electronuclear activities, i.e., from nuclear medicine activities, industrial, and scientific research. The latter are responsibility of the Integrated Service for the management of radioactive waste: a group of authorized Operators supervised by ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development). In this paper, the Italian regulatory framework, the classification of radioactive waste and the most used characterization techniques, both destructive and nondestructive, are outlined.
