A Roadmap to National and Regional Programmes'
work on Chemicals Assessment

Efforts continue to be made in OECD to create, maintain and improve the various parts of a process which looks at sharing in a mutually beneficial manner work from National and Regional Chemicals Programmes while saving resources and avoiding inefficiencies caused by duplicative work.

The links below lead to existing scheduling information of national/regional and international assessments notified to the OECD by OECD member countries and stakeholders. They are provided here with the aim to assist in avoiding duplication across national/regional programmes in the area of chemical assessment.

A project is underway to provide a more integrated access to this information in the future.

    IMAP Framework

    Stage Two of IMAP began in July 2016 and is continuing in 2018-19. We will continue to assess chemicals on the AICS, including:

        • Chemicals identified as a concern for which action has been taken overseas
        • Chemicals that can be rapidly identified and assessed by using Stage One information.

    We will also publish information for chemicals on the AICS that pose a low risk to human health or the environment or both. This work will provide efficiencies for the identification of higher risk chemicals requiring assessment.

    Assessments completed are published at: https://www.nicnas.gov.au/chemical-information/imap-assessments/imap-assessments
