Eight of these chemicals were included in our current "high-priority" list, and the 6 remaining chemicals were very weak human AChE inhibitors, 2 of which, aldicarb and dichlorvos, were identified as possible "false negatives" from our similarity analysis at a threshold of 75%.
The Member States trying to keep approval for aldicarb are instead trying to win the Commission over to a compromise under which the use of the pesticide would be restricted but not outlawed completely.

The safety reviews still to be completed are those for carbamate pesticides as a class and the carbamate aldicarb in particular.
