Materials containing Chemical-terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI) must be appropriately designated and withheld from public disclosure. CVI must also be physically controlled and protected. The protections include:
- Storage of CVI
- Marking of CVI
- Transmission of CVI
- Responsibilities when in transit with CVI
- Destruction of CVI
Use the CVI cover sheet to help safeguard CVI from unauthorized or inadvertent disclosure by placing it on the front and back of transmittal letters, reports, or documents.
The CVI Procedures Manual provides guidance to anyone authorized to possess, disclose, or receive CVI on how to ensure sensitive information about the nation's high-risk chemical facilities is safeguarded.
Reporting CVI Incidents
Under 6 CFR § 27.400(d), covered persons must notify the Agency of any unauthorized releases of CVI and refer to the Agency any requests for access to CVI by persons without a need to know.
