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 a lack of knowledge 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. In the first steps of the research the users of plant protection products were identified. A list of actors that contribute to non-agricultural use has been established. Second, a review of all different methods of data collection, already tested, has been performed for each category of users. Beside this review an identification of advantages and disadvantages of all different methods has been explained and a degree of certainty related to each method of data collection has been implemented. A proposal of the best data collection methods for each category of non-agricultural users has been presented. Third, a methodology for verifying the pesticide statistics of sales and uses of pesticides was set up.
