Using relative dating the fossil is compared to something for which an age is already known.

So, you might say that the 'full-life' of a radioactive isotope ends when it has given off all of its radiation and reaches a point of being non-radioactive.

Radiometric dating, often called radioactive dating, is a technique used to determine the age of materials such as rocks.
