Australia IMAP Lists 3000 "Stage One" Chemicals for Assessment
The characteristics used to identify "stage one" chemicals are listed in the table on the NICNAS site and include a) chemicals for which NICNAS holds exposure data, b) chemicals identified as
a concern or for which action has been taken overseas, and c) chemicals detected in international studies analysing chemicals present in the blood in babies’ umbilical cords.
NICNAS has set up an online searchable database for anyone wishing to find out which chemicals are included in Stage One.
