The Department of Homeland Security implements the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program to secure our nation's high-risk chemical facilities. Since the program's inception in 2007, the Roberts Law Group has worked with some of the nation's largest companies to develop CFATS compliance strategies that leverage practical solutions, reduce the ongoing compliance burden, and create sustainable CFATS programs.
The United States Coast Guard is responsible for enforcement of the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), which regulates many chemical and petrochemical facilities located on or near the nation's waterways. The Roberts Law Group works closely with many MTSA-regulated facilities across virtually every Captain of the Port Zone to develop precise and technically-accurate Facility Security Plans and related MTSA training materials and compliance aids.
Facilities that offer certain hazardous material for transportation by truck or rail must maintain a Department of Transportation (DOT) HM-232 Security Plan. The Roberts Law Group has developed hundreds of turn-key, site-specific, and user-friendly DOT HM-232 security plans.
