CFATS Laws and Regulations


These are the statutes, regulations, and notices regarding the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) regulatory program.

Authorized by Congress through the DHS Appropriations Act of 2007, CFATS uses a dynamic multi-tiered risk assessment process to identify chemical facilities that are high risk. Facilities determined to be high-risk are assigned a tier and are required to meet and maintain certain performance-based security standards appropriate to the chemicals of interest these facilities possess and the risks they pose.
