Aircraft de-icing and anti-icing

Information for ground staff on when to make a safety report

The Ground Handling Operations Safety Team (GHOST) is working across the aviation industry to support a just culture that encourages open reporting of accidents and incidents.

Ground handling staff should use the CAA's Mandatory Occurrence Reporting (MOR) process if any of the following events occur:

  • Unsatisfactory aircraft de-icing/anti-icing on the ground.

  • Contamination or degradation of de-icing/anti-icing fluid.
