IP Test methods

IP Test methods

The EI is seen as a world class leader in test method development, developing and publishing international standard test methods (known as IP Test Methods) for petroleum and related products. We publish an annual compilation of test methods based on both traditional and modern instrumentation techniques (including joint methods with BSI, EN ISO and ASTM). These IP Test Methods are an essential part of any quality control regime and are necessary for national and international trading of petroleum and petroleum products. IP Test Methods can be ordered individually or the 2016 collection is available as a three-volume paperback set, complete with a searchable USB.
