The laws and regulations currently in place around high-risk chemical facilities are complicated. Join expert speaker Ryan Davison in this webinar as he clearly explains the policies behind the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Program Authorization and Accountability Act of 2014, which is the legislation that regulates high-risk chemical facilities, to define Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information.
The session will also explain the United States Department of Homeland Security's (DHS's) authority to regulate security at certain chemical facilities in the United States under the CFATS program. Learn how the DHS "tiers" chemical facilities; how to request a CFATS Compliance Assistance Visit; and the details of compliance and enforcement. Plus, understand how CFATS impacts colleges and universities and what to expect and how to prepare for a CFATS authorization inspection.
Understand policies that regulate the workings of chemical industry from someone who is directly associated with lawmakers and staff who are responsible for creating the policies. You will have a better understanding of how Capitol Hill activities directly influence your work. You will leave the session with a full understanding of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards and know what you should expect about the future changes that may apply to the current standards.
You will also learn about Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT), which is IT backbone of the CFATS program which has an inclusion of 4 primary applications: The user registration, top screen, Security Vulnerability Assessment and Site Security Plan (SSP). Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information is that category of information protection which ensures secure handling of Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) and certain CFATS-related information which is constantly into evaluating opportunities that enhance the whole of CSAT and helps improve submissions.
