OCS Posts Links Chemical Security Quarterly to CFATS Knowledge Center

Today the CISA Office for Chemical Security (OCS) published links on the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Knowledge Center to two issues of their Chemical Security Quarterly publication; August 2020 and December 2020. These flyers are typically distributed by email (you can subscribe to the CISA email distribution here), I just received my copy of the March 2021 issue.

While some of the articles in these two issues are somewhat dated (the description of the ‘upcoming’ December 2020 Chemical Security Seminars for instance), there is a lot of good information about the CFATS program in them. Since CISA no longer dates changes to their web pages, the section on ‘New and Updated Resources’ provides a list of recently updated pages. Pages listed in the December 2020 issue that have not already been discussed here include:

CFATS and the CISA Gateway,

CFATS Authorization Inspections Fact Sheet,

CFATS Compliance Inspections Fact Sheet,

CFATS Penalty Policy Overview Flyer,

CFATS Most Commonly Regulated Chemicals of Interest,

CFATS Report Violations,

CFATS Propane Flyer,

CFATS Receiving a COI Flyer,

As far as I can tell, there is no really new information in any of these flyers, they are mainly reformatting to reflect the change from NPPD to CISA. Similarly, OCS has updated the following CFATS industry flyers:


Colleges and Universities,

Cosmetic Manufacturing,

Fishery and Hatchery,

Food Manufacturing,

Glass Production,


Meat Processing,

Pool and Water Park,

Pulp and Paper Production,

Warehouse, Storage and Distribution Facilities,
