The abbreviation CIPAC stands for Collaborative International Pesticides Analytical Council. We are an international, non-profit-oriented and non-governmental organization (see Contact) 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").

MT 46.3 - Accelerated storage procedure

 

Content Handbook J

 

Outline of method

A sample is placed in a glass bottle (or another suitable container), which is subsequently closed and placed in an oven at a specified temperature for a defined period of time.

 

Scope

The objective is to simulate the normal long-term ageing of a formulation by heating. Although actual data from a product in sales packs and stored in e.g. warehouses is preferable, the accelerated storage test provides useful guidance on performance after storage since many formulations that perform poorly in the accelerated test do not have satisfactory shelf lives (of at least 2 years) in hot or temperate climates.

The mehod is usable for solid and liquid formulations.
