Today the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice in the Federal Register (76 FR 31997) about the existence of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the NRC and DHS on issues related to the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS). According to the Notice:

Chemical Facility Security, NRC, NRC-DHS MOU
“The MOU delineates clear lines of responsibility between the parties, based on their legal authorities, for the security of high-risk chemical facilities subject to DHS regulation and for the security of chemicals at facilities subject to NRC regulation. The MOU describes the parties’ relationship in identifying which facilities are subject to NRC regulation and thus are, in whole or in part, exempt from the chemical facility security regulations issued by DHS.”
A copy of the MOU is available at

I’ll have more information after I have a chance to do a detailed review of the MOU.
