ABSTRACT
The article discusses the start of the strict enforcement of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) in early 2010 by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is stated that facilities which use, store, distribute or manufacture chemicals are required to submit information for screening online to determine possibility of "high risk" rating. Facilities considered to be "high risk" will reportedly have to submit a Site Security Plan.
