ECSS-Q-70-22A – The control of limited shelf-life materials (21 January 2000)

This Standard has been cancelled and replaced by ECSS-Q-ST-70-22C (31 July 2008).


Several classes of materials depend on a chemical reaction for their application and their final properties are sensitive to the exact composition of the reactants. The final properties vary with the reactantsÂ’ age and storage condition.

This Standard defines the procedure to be used for the control of limited shelf-life materials employed in the fabrication of spacecraft and associated equipment.
