Photographic Activity Test is an ISO [1] standard test detailed in ISO 18916:2007 (E). Previous versions of the standard were numbered ISO 14523:1999(E); however, it was updated and renumbered in 2007.

The test evaluates materials for archival quality and their use in photographic enclosures. Many different types of materials can be tested including: paper, boards, plastic, adhesives, pens, stickers, labels, paints and inks. The test involves incubating samples and detectors in a high-temperature, high-humidity accelerated aging environment.
