U.S. Congressional Legislation: CFATS

A House of Representatives subcommittee recently held a hearing to discuss the government’s Chemical Facility Anti-terrorism Standards (CFATS) program. Under CFATS, chemical facilities work with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a security program based on a facility’s risk level. The program, which was established in 2007, will expire at the end of this year. Lawmakers asked witnesses to give their opinions of the program and to address whether it should be made permanent.
