DHS Amends List of Chemicals of Interest

Tuesday, November 06, 2007
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a news release stating that it has issued an advance copy of its amendment to the chemical facility anti-terrorism standards regulations. DHS also posted a list of the chemicals of interest. Domestic facilities possessing chemicals of interest at or above the screening threshold quantity (STQ) must submit certain information to DHS so that the agency can determine whether the facility presents a high level of security risk. The official version of the amendment and the list of chemicals of interest will be published in the Federal Register in the near future. While this rulemaking does not directly affect maritime interests, it provides insight into the approach being taken by DHS regarding anti-terrorism issues. [Source: HK Law]
