Yesterday the folks at DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) published the latest CFATS Fact Sheet. The information provided shows continued increases in the number of facilities with authorized and approved site security plans and a decrease in the number of facilities currently covered by the CFATS program during the month of June 2014.
The total number of authorized and approved sites continues to show month-to-month improvements as shown by this table.
The daily approval rate continues to show uneven performance on a month-to-month basis, but in many ways that is to be expected since each facility is a unique entity requiring differing amounts of time and chemical security inspector efforts.
The total number of CFATS facilities continues to show a decline reflecting an mixture of plant closures, inventory reductions and eliminations that allow facilities to be removed from the program coverage.
