Description
 
Facilities that produce, store, or use hazardous chemicals could be of interest to terrorists intent on using toxic chemicals to inflict mass casualties in the U.S. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) issued regulations that establish standards for the security of high-risk chemical facilities. It 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. DHSäó»s Infrastructure Security Compliance Div. (ISCD), which manages the program, places high risk facilities in risk-based tiers and is to conduct inspections after it approves facility security plans. A Nov. 2011 ISCD internal memorandum raised concerns about ISCDäó»s ability to fulfill its mission. This report assessed the extent to which DHS has (1) assigned chemical facilities to tiers and assessed its approach for doing so; (2) revised its process to review facility security plans; and (3) communicated and worked with owners and operators to improve security. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
