IMAP Assessments

Chemicals assessed using the Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation (IMAP) Framework are being published in several tranches:

Chemicals for which assessments are available can also be identified by searching "assessed" in the IMAP status field in the IMAP Search for Stage One Chemicals.

The IMAP Framework is a science and risk-based model designed to align the assessment effort with the human health and environmental impacts of chemicals. It has three tiers of assessment, with the assessment effort increasing with each tier. A decision is made at the end of each assessment tier as to whether the next tier of assessment is required to determine risk. The risk assessments for human health and environment have been conducted separately and may have different outcomes and be published separately. The assessment outcomes are based on the information available at the time.

More information on the approaches, tools and information used to characterise risk in the IMAP Framework is provided in the Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation (IMAP) Framework document.
