The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released an interim final rule that imposes comprehensive federal security regulations for high risk chemical facilities. This encompasses facilities not traditionally considered to be chemical facilities, including many different types of manufacturers. The rule establishes risk-based performance standards for security of the nation's chemical facilities and requires covered chemical facilities to:

  • prepare Security Vulnerability Assessments, which identify facility security vulnerabilities, and to
  • develop and implement Site Security Plans, which include measures that satisfy the identified risk-based performance standards.
