Of these 96, 15 chemicals have been deemed as high risk (can be used at make homemade explosives or toxic devices) and are covered by the voluntary National Code of Practice for Chemicals of Security Concern (Code). It should be noted that Ammonium nitrate is not included in this group of 15 as it is regulated separately by state and territory governments.
