ISCD Updates PSP Manual – 08-30-18

This week the DHS Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) published a new version of their Personnel Surety Program (PSP) Instructions manual dated 8-30-18. This replaces the version printed 9-18-17. As we have seen with most of the recent rewrites of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program manuals, most of the changes in this manual only minor changes have been made to clarify requirements.

There is some new information about the Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC). The TSA began issuing a new and improved version of the TWIC to make it more difficult to counterfeit or alter. Laurie Thomas did a blog post on this TWIC change back in July. The new information in this manual is found on page 29 in the Note below the new photos.

If you are navigating the CFATS web site to find this new manual (instead of using the link above), you have to look on the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) page under ‘Additional Resources’. Do not use the link on the CFATS Knowledge Center; that still takes you to the earlier version of the manual. NOTE: There is no notice on either page about the change in manual versions.
