WHO has published generic human health risk assessment models for insecticides used for other public health purposes (WHO, 2011a and 2011b), and a decision was taken by WHO to develop a risk assessment model for aircraft disinsection insecticides, based on the same principles. In order to assist Member States who are required to assess aircraft disinsection insecticides within their jurisdiction, a number of product types currently used or proposed for use have been evaluated according to the risk assessment model. In this publication, the generic risk assessment model (with worked examples) is presented first, in Part A, along with the description of the process used to develop the model. The evaluation of the different types of aircraft disinsection product against the risk assessment model is presented in Part B.
