Appendix A
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.
