The Department's implementation of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), published April 2007, entered its third stage with launch of the secure, on-line CSAT Site Security Plan (SSP) tool. Only facilities that submitted Security Vulnerability Assessments and were subsequently notified in writing by the Department they have been finally determined to be high-risk have access via CSAT to complete and submit the CSAT Site Security Plan (SSP).

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 at or 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., your source for tips to help travelers get to their destinations quickly and safely!

OSHA determined that lead acid batteries are hazardous chemicals because of their potential chemical exposure risks and physical hazards.  They can leak, spill, or break not only in accidents or emergencies, but even in normal use.  Thus, an employer regulated under OSHA, 29 CFR $ 1910.1200 is required to prepare or have available an MSDS for lead acid batteries used or stored on site.
