Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation (IMAP)


NICNAS is assessing the human health and environmental impacts of unassessed industrial chemicals listed on the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS). This is being done under an innovative framework to accelerate the assessment of these chemicals and is called the Inventory Multi-tiered Assessment and Prioritisation (IMAP).

In July 2012, NICNAS started assessing around 3,000 existing chemicals identified as Stage One Chemicals on the AICS using the IMAP Framework.
