Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS)

CFATS requires certain chemicals that meet, or exceed, listed threshold amounts to be reported to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) within 60 days of receipt of the chemical. To ensure compliance, you must update your chemical inventory within 30 days of receipt of any Appendix A, DHS Chemicals of Interest (COI).  CFATS also requires that any COI in your possession must be secured from theft, tampering or diversion at all times. 

CFATS training is now available in BuckeyeLearn for new employees in affected laboratories and shops.  In addition, the BuckeyeLearn training can serve as a refresher for existing employees.

If you have any questions regarding the CFATS program, chemicals of interest and/or have any additional chemical security training needs, please contact Crystal Shreve at or at 614-688-1480.
