CFATS Implementation Reaches Stage Three

The Department of Homeland Security has launched a secure, online CSAT Site Security Plan tool.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that its implementation of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards has reached stage three with the launch of a secure, online Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) Site Security Plan tool. CFATS was originally published in April 2007.

Only facilities that submitted Security Vulnerability Assessments and were subsequently notified in writing by the department they have been finally determined to be high risk have access via CSAT to complete and submit the SSP.

DHS has issued Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards for any facility that manufactures, uses, stores, or distributes certain chemicals at or above a specified quantity. Unless otherwise notified by the department, high-risk facilities have 120 days from the time they receive written notification to complete and submit an SSP or a department-approved Alternative Security Program (ASP).
