DHS Extends Personnel Surety Program to Tier 3 and 4 Facilities


The Office of Management and Budget has approved the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA’s) Information Collection Request which authorizes CISA to implement the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Personnel Surety Program (PSP) for all covered chemical facilities, to include Tier 3 and Tier 4 facilities.


Within the next few weeks, CISA will publish a notice in the Federal Register formally notifying the public of the CFATS PSP implementation at all high-risk chemical facilities. The PSP will be rolled out in a phased manner to allow CISA to assist facilities submitting information, and to not overburden any one company during this process.
