A high temperature gas cooled reactor-pebble bed module (HTR-PM) is currently under design and construction in China. Calculations of induced radioactivity in the concrete containment vessel of HTR-PM were performed in order to predict the decommissioning problems. The main activation products and the ambient dose equivalent rate corresponding to 40 years of operations followed by 30 days/1 year/10 years of decay, were calculated by using the Monte Carlo particle transport code FLUKA. Finally, according to the Chinese National Standard and on the basis of the knowledge gained from this study, the classifications of the radioactive solid wastes were discussed, and some suggestions for the working duration of the employees were given.
