Introduction

This document has been prepared in cooperation between the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (the department) and the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) for the regulation of disinsection requirements of aircraft flying into Australia and New Zealand.

International aircraft are disinsected to help protect Australia and New Zealand from potential disease vectors and harmful pests. This listing has been jointly developed by the department and MPI incorporating the latest recommendations and practices from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Airlines will need to contact MPI to ensure product acceptance in New Zealand. Disinsection products used within New Zealand must also be registered with the (Environmental Protection Authority (EPA New Zealand)).

Airlines will need to ensure that products used in Australia are registered by the Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Authority (APVMA). This may affect spray on arrival aircraft or aircraft that have not met Australia’s disinsection requirements and are required to perform spray on arrival under the supervision of departmental officers.

It is the airlines responsibility to ensure the aerosol products used meet all aviation and aircraft manufacturers technical and safety requirements, the WHO and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) guidelines, as well as meeting the department's and MPI requirements.

Aerosol products used for entry into both Australia and New Zealand must be fit for purpose and contain the following active ingredients for each treatment type listed in Table 1.

Table 1 - Treatment and active ingredients
Treatment Active ingredients
Pre-embarkation 2% permethrin
Pre-flight 2% permethrin
Top of descent 2% d-phenothrin
On-arrival 2% d-phenothrin
Holds 2% d-phenothrin and 2% permethrin
Touch ups 2% permethrin

As a minimum requirement, all aerosol cans, must be clearly labelled, in English, with a list of all active ingredients used. Alternatively, they must be accompanied with an English version of the MSDS (material safety data sheet) for each product used.

This document must be read in conjunction with the Schedule of aircraft disinsection procedures for flights into Australia and New Zealand.

Rate and method of application

Spray rates apply to all aircraft series, unless otherwise stated.

Use the Spray rates calculator tool found on the department’s website if aircraft model is not listed, or contact the department or MPI for additional information.

Cabin

The rate of application for cabin spray is based on 10 grams per 1000 cubic feet and is typically achieved by discharging aerosols while walking at the rate of one step or row of seats per second. Wide-bodied aircraft may require operator to use up to two cans per aisle.

Cabin spray typically discharges at the rate of one gram per second; therefore each 100 grams can take approximately 100 seconds to fully discharge - knowing this can help operator achieve even coverage.

Hold(s)

Unless otherwise specified, hold spray rates have been rounded up to the nearest 150 grams standard one-shot aerosol for holds.

When amounts of less than 150 grams of hold spray are specified for either hold, an applicator may choose to either:

  • Use the full 150 grams size can(s) and proceed as usual; or
  • Fit a multi-shot nozzle to the can(s) used and apply the spray manually via the pressure hatches after hold doors are closed. When there are no pressure hatches, operators may direct the spray via an opening through a nearly closed hold door, being careful to avoid any spray loss to the exterior of the aircraft.

Any additional baggage cavities not mentioned, such as small nose cone storage areas on private aircrafts are to be sprayed for a minimum of 2 seconds each.

General requirements

Any exhausted or partly exhausted can(s) used must travel on board the aircraft and will be subject to verification checks on-arrival, as required.

Spray rates listing

This listing has been divided into four aircraft types:

  • Section 1–Commercial Passenger Aircraft
  • Section 2–Small Jets, Regional and Private Aircrafts (including Private Helicopters)
  • Section 3–Military Aircraft
  • Section 4–Freighter Aircraft

1. Commercial passenger aircraft

2. Small jets, regional and private aircraft

Where holds can be accessed internally, these have been added to the spray amount required for the cabin.
Cabin spray delivery rates are one gram/second for both PED and TOD spray. Cabin spray rates have been rounded up to the nearest 5 grams. Unless otherwise specified, the amount of spray required for external holds (seconds discharged) relates to the total number of ‘external access only’ holds.

If operators use one-shot 2% permethrin and 2% d/phenothrin aerosols to spray the holds on any aircraft, please be aware that excess amounts of spray may activate the on board smoke detectors.

For any holds requiring 20gms of spray or less, it is acceptable to use a 2% permethrin aerosol.

For small one/two seater aircraft (not listed), use discretionary amounts of spray estimated on the volume matching the nearest to the aircraft to be treated, where less than 5 grams of spray would be required.

For helicopters or any non-listed aircraft flying or carried on board a vessel, disinsection must be conducted at the following rate, 1 gram of spray (equivalent to 1 second of spraying) per 100 grams cubic feet of internal space.

3. Military aircraft

Cabin spray delivery rates are one gram/second for both PED and TOD spray.

  • Helicopters or any non-listed aircraft flying or carried on board a vessel, disinsection must be conducted at the following rate, 1 gram of spray (equivalent to 1 second of spraying) per 100 cubic feet of internal space.
  • For aircraft with tiny interiors such as fighter jets, use discretionary amounts of spray where less than 5 grams of spray would be required.
  • If operators use one-shot 2% permethrin and 2% d/phenothrin aerosols to spray the holds on any aircraft, please be aware that excess amounts of spray may activate the on board smoke detectors.
  • For any holds requiring 20gms of spray or less, it is acceptable to use a 2% permethrin aerosal.

4. Freighter

When disinsecting the cargo hold on the main deck, extra care will be needed to ensure safe application, due to the higher concentration of combined active ingredients being used in hold formulation aerosols:

  • Ensure the aerosol(s) are directed away from your body and walk away from area being disinsected.
  • Avoid breathing the mist.
  • Vacate the area on completion of spraying and allow at least five minutes for the spray to settle before re-entering.

If an airline is not on a PED agreement Pre-spray is required for galley, toilets, passenger compartments and all areas not treated with hold spray. Top of Descent is required in the passenger compartments

As the amounts of PED and TOD spray may vary depending on the specific configuration of the freighter, apply these sprays by walking at the rate equivalent to one row or step per second.
