CSAT Corporate Reporting Tool
The January-February 2010 issue of the Journal of Hazmat Transportation arrived today. Those of you who may subscribe to this journal may have noticed that I am a writer for this magazine. I cover chemical security issues (no surprise) and do reviews of pending legislation, public comments on proposed regulations and what ever else the Editor throws my way. The reason that I mention this here is that I did an article for this issue on a Corporate Reporting tool that DHS has posted in draft form on the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) web site. Laurie Boulden, the Senior Compliance Officer for the Infrastructure Security Compliance Division at DHS has been developing this tool as a method for corporate security managers or compliance directors to have a single source for tracking the CFATS status of multiple facilities within their organization. Unfortunately, I can’t give you a URL for the article since it is not yet up on the Journal’s subscription only web site. If you or someone within your organization has a subscription to the print version of the Journal you can find the article on page 17.
