Critical Infrastructure Protection: DHS Is Taking Action to Better Manage Its Chemical Security Program, but It Is Too Early to Assess Results: Congressional Testimony
Stephen L. Caldwell (au)
Statement of Stephen L. Caldwell, Dir., Homeland Security and Justice, GAO. The events of September 11, 2001, triggered a national re-examination of the security of facilities that use or store hazardous chemicals in quantities that, in the event of a terrorist attack, could put large numbers of Americans at risk of serious injury or death. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) issued regulations that establish standards for the security of high-risk chemical facilities. DHS established the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program to assess the risk posed by these facilities and inspect them to ensure compliance with DHS standards. The Infrastructure Compliance Security Div. (ISCD), a component of the Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP), manages the program. A Nov. 2011 internal ISCD memorandum, prepared by ISCD senior managers, has raised concerns about the management of the program. This testimony focuses on (1) how the memorandum was developed and any challenges identified; (2) what actions are being taken in response to any challenges identified; and (3) the extent to which ISCDäó»s proposed solutions require collaboration with the Nat. Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) or IP. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
