No.  There are no established standards for the longevity of DVD or CD. I
understand there is an ISO standard in the works, but it is still a draft.
The only standard that may pertain is "ANSI/NAPM IT9.21-199 Life Expectancy
of Compact Discs (CD-ROM) - Method for Estimating, Based on Effects of
Temperature and Relative Humidity."
