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").
