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").

29.11.2016 Dear colleagues, dear friends,
It is with deep regret I have to announce that Hans-Paul Bosshard passed away.
Hans-Paul was a former CIPAC chairman and one of the leading CIPAC members in the past. Along with his dedication to CIPAC, he has largely contributed to the development of CIPAC and its current position.
Hans-Paul will leave a void not only as a scientist but also as an amiable and reliable colleague for those who had the privilege to know him.
With sincere sympathy,
Ralf Hänel
(Chairman of CIPAC)
