Protect Pulp and Paper Production Chemicals from Use in a Terrorist Attack   [open pdf - 434KB]

From the Document: "The pulp and paper industry uses a variety of chemicals throughout the manufacturing process of paper and paper products--from books and currency, to paper towels and food wrappers--that are indispensable to our modern way of life. In the wrong hands, however, some of these same chemicals can be used for great harm. In 2006, Congress authorized the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to establish the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program. Managed by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the CFATS program identifies and regulates high-risk chemical facilities to ensure that security measures are in place that reduce the risk of certain chemicals being weaponized. [...] Pulp, paper, and paper conversion facilities--e.g., pulp mills, paper mills, paperboard mills, newsprint mills, and specialty paper manufacturers--that use COI are chemical facilities under CFATS and may be subject to its regulations."
