The abbreviation CIPAC stands for Collaborative International Pesticides Analytical Council. We are an international, non-profit-oriented and non-governmental organization (see How to reach us) devoted to:

  • promote the international agreement on methods for the analysis of pesticides and physico-chemical test methods for formulations.
  • promote inter-Iaboratory programmes for the evaluation of test methods

The methods are proposed by companies and are tested by laboratories all over the world. After evaluation of the results and adoption, the methods are published in the CIPAC Handbooks (see "CIPAC Methods" and "CIPAC Publication").

Further information: Please note, the trial is limited to maximum 12 participating laboratories because of the availability of samples and standard
material. The selection is done based on the application order.
Due to the very high acute toxicity of the active substance (a rodenticide) participating laboratories need to work according to high safety standards. Working in fume cupboards with a high air exchange rate is mandatory, also wearing personnel protective equipment such as safety glasses, gloves and lab coat is a must.
The sample preparation of the formulation (block bait) requires the sample to be grated. A suitable grater will
be provided to each participating laboratory.
