Abstract
Regulation (EC) No 1185/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council concerning statistics on pesticides covers both annual statistics on the placing on the market of pesticides and statistics on agricultural use of pesticides. There is still no information on the pesticides used for non-agricultural purposes, so an indent was introduced in Section 6 of Annex II of the Regulation 1185/2009. According to this indent, Eurostat will take a lead in identifying the importance of commercial non-agricultural use of pesticides. To avoid possible false conclusions on the non-commercial and non-agricultural use of pesticides, Eurostat decided to carry out a pilot study on both commercial and non-commercial non-agricultural use of pesticides. The first steps of the research is to identify the users of plant protection products. A methodology to estimate the amount of pesticide use on specific crop groups will be worked out. A list of actors that contribute significantly to non-agricultural pesticide use has been established.
