ISCD Adds New FAQ to CFATS Knowledge Center

Today the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) posted a new frequently asked question (FAQ) to their Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Knowledge Center web site. The new FAQ (#1791) asks: “What are Reportable Chemicals?” The answer is supposed to be a ‘video tutorial’, but the FAQ response does not actually show the video. If you right-click on the video box and copy the video address and then paste that into your browser you get (actually, I get; I don’t know what you will see) the following error message:

“Communication Error (tcp_error)

RP1a A communication error occurred: ""
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.”

The idea of using a video to explain regulatory issues fits in with the times as the YouTube generation seems to prefer getting information from videos rather than reading explanatory documents. Unfortunately, ISCD appears to be having some technical issues with embedding the video in their FAQ response. Perhaps they should have put the video on the DHS YouTube channel and then just provided a link to the video.

NOTE: As of 9:50 pm EDT on 4-23-18 this FAQ is no longer on the CFATS Knowledge Center. It was apparently taken down some time today.

Wasn't sure if this was still a supported blog, but just checked out that FAQ and not only is it on the knowledge center, but the video is also works.
