If you are covered by EPA’s RMP rule and/or OSHA’s PSM regulation then you most likely are in the process of completing the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Top-screen/Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT). If you possess chemicals on the threshold quantity(TQ) list from RMP or PSM, and you were not covered by these regulations, it is not a safe assumption that CFATS (Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard) does not apply to your facility.
The clock is ticking and there is work to do. On Tuesday, November 20, 2007 the Department of Homeland Security’s Final Rule and Appendix to the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards was published. Facilities have 60 days to complete and submit their Topscreen/ Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT). This publication is to assist you with that process.
