Updated Security Requirements for Chemical Plants

Here’s the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s posting on its Chemical Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS), issued last month as an interim final rule. They’ve been in the works since 2006, if not earlier.

The rules cover chemical manufacturing facilities of all levels, including oil refineries, several of which are protected by PRO Barrier’s systems. Chemical facilities are required to develop Security Vulnerability Assessments, along with Site Security Plans.

This all represents an appropriate security emphasis on facilities that might otherwise be highly vulnerable to devastating harm.
