Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Continued Outreach

The Department of Homeland Security identifies and regulates high-risk chemical facilities through the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program. The CFATS program prevents the misuse of certain Chemicals of Interest (COI) at America’s high-risk chemical facilities for use in a terrorist act on the homeland through the systematic regulation, inspection, and enforcement of chemical infrastructure security requirements.

The CFATS rule establishes risk-based performance standards for the security of the Nation’s chemical facilities that include oil refineries, chemical manufacturers and distributors, semiconductor fabrication sites, agricultural retailers, colleges and universities, and food processing plants. It requires covered chemical facilities to prepare Security Vulnerability Assessments, which identify facility security vulnerabilities, and to develop and implement Site Security Plans.
