Chemicals of Interest
|Responsibility for chemical security is shared among federal, state, and local governments, as well as the private sector.
The Department of Homeland Security has issued Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards for any facility that manufactures, uses, stores, or distributes certain chemicals above a specified quantity.
Government and industry must work together to strengthen the security of America's chemical facilities, while not undercutting an important part of the nation's economy.
