The decontamination installation is built, equipped and operated such that the waste materials are decontaminated as uniformly and completely as possible using moist heat. Techniques that work with dry heat are not permitted.

The conditions for temperature and pressure are described in appendix and


The operating pressure of the equipment is adapted to the operating temperature, thereby ensuring at all times that the generated steam is saturated. The decontamination phase starts when the specified temperature and pressure are reached.

Only if all the provisions of the code of good practice specified in appendix are complied with can the decontamination be considered adequate.
