Implementation of IMAP Framework - Stage One

The new Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation (IMAP) framework is being implemented in a staged manner. From July 2012, NICNAS began assessing around 3,000 existing chemicals on AICS using the IMAP framework. The chemicals in the first group are identified as “Stage One Chemicals”.

The Stage One chemicals were identified based on characteristics agreed by stakeholders as priorities for early consideration and sources subsequently identified by NICNAS and stakeholders. These characteristics and sources of information are provided in Figure 1.

Figure 1: Stage One Chemicals

  Category
Chemicals for which NICNAS holds exposure data
  • Chemicals reported in the NICNAS 2006 High Volume Chemical Survey
  • Chemicals on the NICNAS Candidate list
  • Chemicals for which NICNAS holds data as a result of various other information gathering activities or technical projects.
Chemicals identified as a concern for which action has been taken overseas
  • Chemicals assessed as part of the Canadian Challenge program i
  • Chemicals assessed as part of the Canadian Petroleum Sector Stream Approach
  • Chemicals classified as Carcinogenic, Mutagenic or Reproductive Toxic (CMR) Chemicals
  • INCI listed chemicals listed on Annex II of the Cosmetic Regulation EC No 1223/2009 (banned)
  • INCI listed chemicals listed on Annex III and V of the Cosmetic Regulation EC No 1223/2009 (restricted)
  • Chemicals with US EPA Action Plans
  • Chemicals included in the EU REACH Substances of Very High Concern Candidate List
  • Chemicals listed in Annex VXII of EU REACH Regulation 2006
  • OECD Perfluorinated chemicals
Chemicals detected in international studies analysing chemicals present in the blood in babies’ umbilical cords.
  • Chemicals detected in umbilical cord blood in a study conducted by the Environmental Working Group
  • Chemicals detected in umbilical cord blood in a study conducted for Greenpeace and World Wildlife Fund UK by TNO ii .


A searchable database of the Stage One chemicals is available here. The list is searchable by CAS number, chemical name, IMAP status and rationale for inclusion in the list.


To gain further efficiencies in the implementation of IMAP, NICNAS is including additional chemicals for assessment during Stage One. These are chemicals that can be rapidly assessed for either (or both) human health and environmental risks because they are included in a group of chemicals already being assessed in Stage One. These chemicals are listed in Table 1.

Voluntary Provision of Information on Stage One Chemicals

NICNAS welcomed the provision of information by introducers and users of the Stage One Chemicals, particularly for those that will be assessed in the first year, within a 90 day period (ending 15th September 2012).

A template (XLS Excel Icon 2.3Mkb) is available for the provision of any information. NICNAS will publish the list of chemicals for which assessment will commence in the second year, prior to July 2013, to allow for the voluntary provision of information of chemicals of these chemicals.

A factsheet on the Stage One chemicals is available here.
