ACA In Action

ACA recently sent members of Congress an Issue Backgrounder urging Congressional action to reauthorize the DHS Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS).

In addition to reauthorization, ACA suggested improvements to CFATS so that this critical program work optimally. Enhancements include:

  • Greater transparency for CFATS tiering determinations and security plan review;
  • Focus on risk-based determinations for personnel surety requirements;
  • Regular review of the “chemicals of interest” list; and
  • Improved coordination for CFATS with other federal chemical security and safety regulatory programs.

CFATS is an important program aimed at preventing chemicals from being stolen, diverted, sabotaged, or deliberately released by terrorist or other bad actors.
