Do you have a plan in place on how to handle a security scenario concerning your chemicals? If not, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) ChemLock program can help you develop a security plan.
If you do have a plan in place, CISA’s ChemLock Exercises can help you test that plan. Facilities can request CISA expertise in facilitating a live tailored tabletop exercise.
CISA also offers CISA Tabletop Exercise Packages (CTEPs), drills, and general materials to help facilities conduct exercises that are tailored specifically for chemical security.
Request a Facilitated Chemical Security Exercise
Facilities can request CISA expertise in facilitating a live tailored tabletop exercise. To request a live exercise, please fill out the ChemLock Services Request Form below.
CISA will initiate several short planning meetings with the requestor to determine the best fit for the facility. Live exercises can run between 2 to 6 hours depending on the complexity and needs of a facility.
After the exercise or drill is complete, CISA will help the facility develop an after-action summary to help facilities evaluate the effectiveness of the security measures tested during the exercise or drill.
Run Your Own Chemical Security Tabletop Exercise
CISA Tabletop Exercise Packages (CTEPs) assist stakeholders in conducting their own exercises. The ChemLock exercises below are tailored specifically for chemical security, are no-cost to download, and include the scenario-specific situation manual, planner handbook, facilitator/evaluator handbook, and assorted forms and templates.
These ChemLock exercise packages are tailored specifically for chemical security and include scenarios such as active shooter, active threat, cyberattack, drones, vehicle ramming, and more.
These CTEP documents include fact sheet, PowerPoint, feedback surveys, handbooks, manuals, templates, and more to help facilitate a general exercise.
These CTEPs are focused on physical security scenarios for a variety of industries and sectors.

NOTE: Participation in any portion of CISA’s ChemLock program does not replace any reporting or compliance requirements under CISA’s Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) regulation (6 CFR part 27). Some ChemLock activities may fulfill CFATS requirements, depending on your specific security plan.
