Homeland security reinstates Top-Screen chemical reporting requirement

Impacted facilities have 60 days to submit data

Posted October 5, 2016

Earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) temporarily suspended the requirement to submit Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards Top-Screens and Security Vulnerability Assessments (SVA) in order to allow for a phased rollout of the new Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT 2.0) surveys and enhanced risk tiering methodology.

On October 1, 2016, the requirement to submit Top-Screens was reinstated. Chemical facilities of interest that have not previously submitted a Top-Screen, but which have come into possession of reportable amounts of chemicals of interest (COI), must submit a Top-Screen within 60 days.

DHS is hosting a number of webinars and in-person demonstrations to showcase the new CSAT 2.0. For more information, see the listing of events on the CFATS Tiering Methodology webpage.
