IEC 62435-1:2017 on long-term-storage covers the terms, definitions and principles of long-term-storage that can be used in as an obsolescence mitigation strategy. Long-term storage refers to a duration that can be more than 12 months for products scheduled for long duration storage. Philosophy, good working practice, and general means to facilitate the successful long-term-storage of electronic components are also addressed.
