- CFATS Compliance
Burns & McDonnell worked directly with the management teams of a specialty chemicals supplier to create a strategy to achieve Department of Homeland Security (DHS) compliance with the Chemical Facility Anti-terrorism Standards (CFATS). While the initial objective was to obtain certification, the CFATS assessment portion of the project enabled the manufacturer to see gaps in its security program and provided a path of low-cost initiatives that could be instituted to bring substantial improvements to the overall security stature.
The final deliverable was a complete guide to all Site Security Plan (SSP) questions for six facilities. This guide is used by data entry personnel to submit SSPs for each location to the DHS. The project also included meeting facilitation for members of management and budgeting regarding the documentation of interim and planned measures, which DHS expects to see being acted upon during the certification process.
