CISA Chemical Security is a subdivision within the Infrastructure Security Division of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) responsible for implementing the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), the nation’s program to regulate security at high-risk chemical facilities, and a proposed Ammonium Nitrate Security Program.
In addition, Chemical Security manages the ChemLock program, a completely voluntary program that provides facilities that possess dangerous chemicals no-cost services and tools to help them better understand the risks they face and improve their chemical security posture in a way that works for their business model.
To further the Infrastructure Security Division's mission of enhancing security and resilience for the nation's critical infrastructure, CISA Chemical Security leads the nation's effort to secure America's high-risk chemical facilities and prevent the use of certain chemicals in a terrorist act on the homeland through both the systematic regulation, inspection, and enforcement of chemical infrastructure security requirements, and by assisting and encouraging chemical facilities that do not fall under the CFATS program to enhance their chemical security posture.
