The present Compact Muon Solenoid Resistive Plate Chambers system has been worked efficiently during Run I and Run II of data taking period (Shah et al., 2020) [1]. In the coming years of operation with the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC), the expected rate and integrated charge are expected to be about 600 Hz/cm2 and 840 mC/cm2, respectively (including a safety factor of three). Therefore, the HL-LHC phase will be a challenge for the RPC system since the expected operating conditions are much harsher than those for which the detectors have been designed, and could introduce non-recoverable aging effects which can alter the detector properties. A longevity test has been started at the CERN Gamma Irradiation Facility to estimate the impact of HL-LHC conditions on the RPC detector performance in order to determine whether the RPC system will survive the harsher background conditions expected at HL-LHC. The latest results of the irradiation test will be presented.
