Pesticides are often used by non-professional users in gardens, glasshouses and apartments. On the market, a good number of products for non-professional users are available. Nevertheless, a specific guidance for the risk assessment for non-professional use of pesticides is not available. ICPS developed a specific approach for the non-professional uses taking into account the different characteristics of this use (dimension of the treated areas, types of crops, types of application, etc.) established in the new Italian Ministry decree law n.33 enacted on 22 January 2018.
