New CFATS blog

There is another new voice in the chemical security community looking at CFATS in a recurring blog over on Actually it is not quite fair to call Ryan Loughin a ‘new voice’ as he has been writing articles on CFATS for a number of magazines. Ryan is the Director of Petrochemical & Energy Solutions at ADT and has been the point man for that company’s CFATS seminars that have been mentioned here in this blog. The latest posting on the new blog briefly looks at the current status of CFATS legislation. Ryan provides a brief summary of the recent action on CFATS renewal in both the House and the Senate. He didn’t mention that DHS had promised to provide their version of a proposed CFATS renewal bill, but his summation of why HR 2868 and S 2996 won’t be considered in this session should also apply to the DHS written version so it isn’t an important omission. I would like to welcome Ryan into the public discussion of about CFATS issues.

As more and more chemical companies move through the various review and evaluation processes demanded by the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), important issues about the practical implications and the cost of the initiative are emerging.

Good recap article nothing new though. Light on substance as well.

Risk calculations would be a prime topic of discussion...
