ISCD Publishes Personnel Surety Program Fact Sheet

Today the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) posted a link to a new program fact sheet on the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Knowledge Center. The fact sheet provides some basic data on the implementation of the personnel surety program, or the screening for terrorist ties portion of the Risk Based Performance Standard (RBPS) 12.

As with all of these Fact Sheets that ISCD has been publishing over the last year or so, there is no really new information provided. All of the information is already available on either the CFATS Personnel Surety Program web page, or in the Federal Register Notice that announced the implementation of the program. What has been done is a relatively simplified presentation has been made available that provides highlights of the program.

The most valuable knowledge condensation here is the basic list of security considerations that facilities need to address in their site security plan for the option(s) being used by the facility to screen personnel authorized unaccompanied access to security areas of covered chemical facilities. This information was explained in more detail here in the Federal Register Notice, but the table in this fact sheet provides the basic information.
