At Allied Fire & Security we have clients that range from home security to manufacturing security. It is important to understand the the concepts of security reach outside of building and fire security all the way to community and national security. Part of our community and state security efforts focus on the comprehensive set of regulations applied to companies that manufacture and handle chemicals.
Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks one of most important regulatory programs, the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), was enacted by Congress with strong bipartisan support. This landmark security program effectively addresses the need to protect chemical facilities while at the same time preserves the chemical industry’s ability to provide essential jobs and products.
Facilities that are required to comply with at least some provisions of the CFATS regulation will largely fall into the following categories:
• chemical manufacturing, storage, and distribution
• energy and utilities
• agriculture and food
• paints and coatings
• universities and research institutions
Clearly, the complexities of CFATS regulations require the assistance of an expert in this field. When you are ready to discuss CFATS regulations and appropriate solutions please come to talk to us.
