New requirements about the inspection of aerial spray systems of sprayers in use for agricultural and forestry machinery!

EN ISO 16122-5:2020 contains the requirements, test methods and verification of the inspection of aerial fixed wing and rotary aircraft spray systems for agriculture, forestry, turf, and vegetation control in transport access ways (such as gas and electric lines), with regard to minimizing the potential risk of environmental contamination during use.

This document applies only to manned aerial aircraft and it does not cover aircraft safety and design criteria for air worthiness, aircraft registration, pilot or operator requirements, all of which are specified separately by countries or regions.

EN ISO 16122-5 refers mainly to the condition of the equipment with respect to its potential risk for the environment and its performance to achieve good applications.

The general requirements of ISO 16122-1 apply where appropriate, including for the protection of inspectors during an inspection.

Standard without a previous version harmonised under Inspection of pesticide application equipment Directive 2009/128/EC.
