CFATS Information Collection Request

On March 23, 2021, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register soliciting public comment on revisions to an Information Collection Request (ICR) relating to various efforts under the CFATS program – including tiering redeterminations, compliance assistance, and verifying Top-Screen information associated with the sale of a facility or the removal of a Chemical of Interest (COI).
In this Federal Register notice, CISA is requesting approval to continue the collection of information to support these efforts, as well as a clearer description of the scope of each instrument. CISA is not proposing changes to the scope of what information is collected. The ICR in question was approved for a three-year period in December 2018 and is set to expire in December 2021.
