Collaborative soft rot tests: Paper for discussion in Working Group II

IRG/WP II 5A

J G Savory, A F Bravery

An account of the major part of the collaborative work on laboratory tests of toxicity of preservatives to soft rot fungi initiated by the European Homologation Committee at Delft in 1966 has been published in ‘Material und Organismen’ (1970) as a report of progress. The main objective of these collaborative tests, namely to establish a reliable and acceptable standard test method was not accomplished. The purpose of this paper is to comment upon the experience gained in order to facilitate discussions, at an IRG meeting, of any further proposals for achieving this objective.
