Description Section 550 of the DHS Appropriations Act of 2007 authorizes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to regulate the security of high risk chemical facilities. Any facility that possesses any chemical of interest (COI) in an amount at or above the applicable Screening Threshold Quantity (STQ) for that chemical must complete and submit certain screening information (Top Screen). The Top Screen is completed online using the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT). DHS will notify the facility in writing of its initial determination as to whether the facility is considered high risk, and thus needs to comply with additional security requirements, such as conducting a Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) and/or developing a Site Security Plan (SSP). In September 2016, DHS unveiled an updated CSAT 2.0 and an enhanced risk tiering methodology. DHS will be reaching out directly to CFATS chemical facilities that have previously submitted Top-Screens to DHS and require that they submit a new Top-Screen using CSAT 2.0. However, facilities may choose to proactively resubmit a Top-Screen prior to receiving the individual notification.

Attendees can expect to learn about the following topics:

•Applicability criteria for the rule – What facilities are subject to CFATS reporting?
•Summary of the CFATS risk assessment process
•CSAT 2.0 updates and implications of DHS’s enhanced risk tiering methodology
