ISCD Updates 2 FAQ Responses – 9-9-20

Today the CISA Infrastructure Security Compliance Division (ISCD) updated the responses to two frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Knowledge Center. Most of the changes are non-substantive editorial changes, but there is a new link to a relatively new CSAT web page.

Updated FAQ

The following FAQ responses were revised today:

NOTE: The links provided for the FAQs in this post were copied from the CFATS Knowledge Center but may not work when followed from your machine. This is an artifact of that web site. If the links do not take you to the referenced FAQ you will have to use the ‘Advanced Search’ function on the page to link to the FAQ or download the ‘All FAQs’ document at the bottom of the ‘Advanced Search’ page.

The following changes were made in the referenced FAQs:

#387 Adds link to new CSAT Top Screen Submissions Tips page,
#1143 Changed URLS to document links

Top Screen Submission Tips Page

According to the date on the web page it was originally published this last May, but this is the first time I have seen the page. The CFATS web site is huge and ISCD does not do a good job of communicating changes to the site.

This page begins with a brief overview of the purpose of the Top Screen. It then goes on to look at five major topics:

• Resubmissions for material modifications,
• Business operations: predictive top-screen filing,
• Business planning: hypothetical top-screen filing,
• Regular resubmissions, and
• Facility closures

I followed all of the links on the page and found that the following two pages had been updated since this new page was published:

I do not see any major changes to those pages.
