Helpful Tips for Completing a Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Site Security Plan [open pdf - 134KB]
"Pursuant to the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), thousands of Site Security Plans (SSPs) have been drafted by high-risk chemical facilities and submitted to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for review and authorization. Additionally, DHS has conducted pre-authorization inspections at some facilities as a means of reviewing submitted SSPs and then providing the facility with additional time to refine the SSP submittal to achieve authorization. As part of the process of reviewing the SSPs and in response to questions from the regulated community, DHS has identified several areas where additional clarity could benefit the development and review of an SSP, including: 1. Appropriate Level of Detail 2. Identifying Specific 'Assets' and 'Systems' 3. Security Measures Appropriate to Specified Risk Levels 4. Facility-Wide v. Asset-Specific Security Measures 5. Year-Round View".
