This International Standard describes test methods for determining the long-term dark storage stability of

colour photographic images.

It is applicable to colour photographic images made with traditional photographic materials. These images

are generated with chromogenic, silver dye-bleach, dye transfer, dye-diffusion-transfer "instant" systems and

similar systems. The test method specified in this International Standard also covers the dark-stability of digital

colour images produced with dry- and liquid-toner electrophotography, thermal dye transfer (sometimes called

"dye sublimation"), and inkjet printing systems.
