ISCD Publishes ‘Bulk Packaging’ FAQ

Today the CISA Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) published a new frequently asked question (FAQ) on the CFATS Knowledge Center. FAQ 1794 addresses the definition of the term “bulk transportation packaging” as used in the Top Screen Instructions.

FAQ 1794 asks: What constitutes “bulk transportation packaging”?

The answer provided is:

“Bulk transportation packaging is referred to in the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) Top-Screen Instructions document found under the “User Manuals” section of the Knowledge Center homepage. Bulk transportation packaging includes transportation containers such as tank cars, barges, railcars, and other large storage containers that hold 4,000 pounds or more of chemicals of interest (COI) and that can be placed on or hitched to a vehicle and removed from a site.”

This definition is taken almost word-for-word from the Top Screen instructions for ‘Theft/Diversion’ chemicals of interest on page 8.
