DHS Updates CFATS Knowledge Center – 06-18-15

This morning the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) updated the CFATS Knowledge Center web page by adding a news item about the new Expedited Approval Program (EAP) and providing a link to a fact sheet about the program.

The fact sheet does not provide any new information not already presented on the EAP web page. In fact, in at least one area, there is not as much information provided. The web site notes that the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) may be used to provide the 30-day notice to ISCD that a facility intends to submit an EAP site security plan (SSP) as well as providing a mailing address to make that notification. The EAP fact sheet contains no mention of how the facility should go about making the notification.

I can still find nothing on the CSAT web site, or the SSP web site that provides any information about the EAP. Since the 30-day notice process officially started yesterday, ISCD still has 30-days to get the EAP SSP form into the system, but I had expected to see provisions on the CSAT page for submitting the 30-day notice.
