In 2007 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) began administrating a system for Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Security (CFATS).  It does not matter what kind of facility you have because the DHS is interested in chemicals.  This means that many facilities that are exempt from PSM (Process Safety Management) and RMP (Risk Management Plans) may still be required to comply with the requirements of the CFATS rule.   This involves registration with Homeland Security and, for some facilities, SVAs (Security Vulnerability Assessments) and SSP (Site Security Plans).


We assist companies with registering with Homeland Security, submitting required information and complying with the CFATS regulation.  We also develop Risk Management Plans in accordance with EPA regulation and Process Safety Management plans in accordance with OSHA regulation.
