Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS)

CFATS, enacted by Section 550 of the Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2007, was published in the Federal Register on April 4, 2007. The rule authorizes implementing risk-based performance standards for the Nation's high-risk chemical facilities. Under the rule, if DHS notifies a facility it is “high risk,” officials will have 60 days in which to file Vulnerability Assessments and 120 days in which to file Site Security Plans. DHS will follow up with site inspections and audits.
