Potential CFATS Appendix A Revisions


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released its unified agenda in Federal Register on March 31, 2021, stating that one of its rulemaking priorities was “improving Appendix A” to the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) regulations and addressing “concerns with release-flammable security issues.”
Industry stakeholders, including the International Liquid Terminals Association (ILTA), anticipate this rulemaking likely applies to the inclusion of gasoline, diesel, and other fuel mixes in Appendix A, which the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has not enforced to date.
