Disclosing CVI within a Facility and Among Private Sector Entities
A facility may disclose Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI) to any of the facility's board members, officers, employees, and any private sector third parties who are affiliated with the facility (e.g., outside attorneys, accountants, consultants, trade association employees) who are CVI Authorized Users with a need to know.
Notification and Tracking of Disclosures
Facilities do not need to notify the Agency of proper disclosures of CVI (i.e., disclosures to Authorized Users with a need to know). Nonetheless, the Agency encourages facilities to maintain a Tracking Log of the receipt and disclosure of all CVI.See Appendix D of the CVI Procedural Manual.
Chemical facilities should also consider:
- Appointing a CVI Point of Contact (POC) to provide oversight and assistance to individuals within the facility.
- Implementing procedures to ensure that CVI is used, handled, safeguarded, and disclosed appropriately.
- Establishing a self-inspection program to include periodic review and assessment of the handling, use, and storage of CVI.
