The objective is to accelerate the ageing of a product by heating. No evidence is available to indicate that a product which has failed this test has a satisfactory shelf life (of at least 2 years) either in the tropics or in temperate zones.
The test thus provides a useful guide on performance after storage in hot or temperate climates. However, a product may pass the test and yet be unsatisfactory in the field.
