ABSTRACT
The article puts into perspectives the state of the U.S. chemical industry in the aftermath of September 11 terrorist strikes. Marty Durbin, managing director for federal affairs at the American Chemistry Council, says that companies are now well protected. The U.S. Congress passed a law in late 2006 that requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to establish and enforce antiterrorism security standards at "high risk" chemical facilities.
