CSAT 2.0 is going live and there have been some changes on the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) web site to support the change in the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT). Today the folks at the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) published links to three new CSAT manual on the CFATS Knowledge Center web page. Earlier this week they published a list of dates for CSAT 2.0 webinars and in-person demonstrations.
In addition to the previously published Top Screen user manual, DHS has now also published:
NOTE: I am having problems downloading the CSAT Portal User Manual. I’m sure that this is a temporary problem. It does not appear that it is a problem with the link, the document is just taking a long time to successfully load.
The Survey Application User Manual is a new manual. It describes how various parts of the CSAT application work.
The CSAT web site has not yet been updated to show these new manuals. They are currently only available on the CFATS Knowledge Center.
