Jun 15, 2015

The President signed into law the Protecting and Securing Chemical Facilities from Terrorist Attacks Act of 2014 (“the CFATS Act of 2014”) on December 18, 2014. The Act requires employees and contractors of a chemical facility of interest to report a Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) violation to the DHS, and those facilities of interest are prohibited by law from retaliating against an employee or contractor for reporting the potential violation. This fact sheet outlines the procedure on how to report a CFATS violation.
