Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI)

 

CFATS introduced a new category of sensitive but unclassified information that protects security-related information developed pursuant to CFATS. This category of information, known as Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI), borrows aspects from existing information protection regimes such as Sensitive Security Information (SSI) and Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII). All covered facilities subject to CFATS must comply with CVI requirements.

 

On September 22, 2008, DHS published Safeguarding Information Designated as Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information (CVI), Revised CVI Procedural Manual, superseding both the June 2007 Safeguarding Information Designated as Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information Procedural Manual and the June 2007 Guide for the Preparation of Sanitized and Derivative Work Products Using Chemical-Terrorism Vulnerability Information.
