The Department of Homeland Security is currently increasing efforts to identify facilities regulated under the Chemical Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standards program. GCCA members may recently have received letters from DHS regarding potential non-compliance with the CFATS requirements to file a Top-Screen with the agency. Notwithstanding certain exemptions, facilities with a chemical of interest, such as anhydrous ammonia, at a screening threshold quantity (10,000 pounds for ammonia) must file a Top-Screen with DHS within 60 days of acquiring a threshold quantity of the chemical. Learn more about the Top-Screen requirements, exemptions and actions to take to protect your facility.
