This Environmental Health Criteria (EHC) series publication describes a generic human health risk assessment model which can be used for risk assessment of exposure to insecticides which are used for disease vector control on board aircraft (the process known as aircraft disinsection). It aims to provide information to national regulatory authorities to assist in conducting risk assessments of such insecticides, including worked examples of typical products.
