This report describes the use a relational data base for the selection of priority hazardous chemicals to give a reasonable starting point and a logical sequence for conducting development programs involving chemical pollutants. The chemicals considered for the data base in this report are those that are most likely to be encountered in or near a marine environment. The first task required identification of those chemicals to which protective clothing is to be exposed. For the second task, a priority list was needed for the development of identification, classification, and quantification response techniques. The strategy was to gather information on spill incidence, chemical hazards, and need for clothing protection associated with each chemical. This information was compiled from a variety of sources and stored in the Chemical Hazard Information Files CHIFs data base using a computer and commercially available data base management software. Selection criteria were established for each task and documented along with sources of information, CHIFs data base structure, programs to enter and sort information, and the hazardous chemical priority lists.
