The DHS CFATS Knowledge Center was updated today with a brief news entry announcing the publication of the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) Personnel Surety Program Application User Manual that I mentioned yesterday.
The announcement says:
“DHS has published the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) Personnel Surety Program Application User Manual, which can be found at https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/csat-personnel-surety-user-manual-03-16-508.pdf. This guide will help users, who have selected Option 1 – Direct Vetting or Option 2 – Use of Vetting Conducted under Other DHS Programs to comply with RBPS 8(iv), navigate the CSAT Personnel Surety Program application developed by DHS to assist Tier 1 and Tier 2 high-risk chemical facilities comply with their Site Security Plan (SSP) or Alternative Security Program (ASP) by submitting information about affected individuals who have or who are seeking access to restricted areas or critical assets. Please visit https://www.dhs.gov/cfats-personnel-surety-program for more information.”
The Documentation section of the page also contains a link to the new manual. No new Frequently Asked Questions were added at this time.
