Authorisation for “Biobor JF” by way of exception

System for preventive antimicrobial treatment of fuel systems of temporarily decommissioned aircrafts

After consultation with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, the Federal Office for Chemicals as the competent authority has issued a general decision on the authorisation of the biocidal product “Biobor JF” for preventive antimicrobial treatment of fuel systems of temporarily decommissioned planes by professional users due to a danger to public health according to Article 55 (1) of Regulation (EU) 528/2012 by way of exception.

The massive reduction of global air traffic due to the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has caused the temporary decommissioning of numerous planes. The biocidal product “Biobor JF” is needed to prevent microbial contamination of the aircraft fuel during the idle time, thereby ensuring safe resumption of airline operations.
