ISCD Publishes CFATS Quarterly – 12-15-17

Today the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) published the latest issue of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Quarterly on the CFATS Knowledge Center. This two page newsletter provides an update on what has been going on in the CFATS program over the last quarter.

Actually, as befits a year-end issue, a goodly portion of the Quarterly provides a brief review of what has been going on in the Program over the last year. Most of the stuff included has been talked about here (and in other ISCD forums) in more detail, but there were two paragraphs that deserve special mention; a short recognition of the lessons learned during the 2017 Hurricane Season and a terse forward look at the upcoming (?) reauthorization of the CFATS program.

Other items included in this issue include:

• A very brief CFATS numbers update;
• An inspection best practices article;
• A brief (and far from comprehensive) list of CFATS program resources;
• A brief blurb on the NAS Improvised Explosives Study; and
• A list of recently published CFATS fact sheets and notices

So far, ISCD seems to be doing a good job avoiding turning this publication into a three-colored, glossy corporate report. I hope they can keep it up.
