President Obama Signs Chemical Security Legislation into Law

from NPMA

President Obama recently signed into law legislation reauthorizing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program for four years. Initial authorized in October of 2006 for a three year period, the program has since been authorized on an annual or ad hoc basis through annual or short term funding legislation. The four-year authorization will provide more certainty to both DHS and the regulated community. While the overwhelming majority of PMPs are not subject to CFATS, fumigators that possess certain amounts of phosphine or aluminum or magnesium phosphide are covered by the program and must submit Top-Screens and other information to DHS. more
