The Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) is the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) program to secure national infrastructure when pertaining to the chemical sector.

CFATS seeks to screen all chemical facilities, identify high risk facilities and have them implement Risk based Performance Standards (RBPS). All facilities undertake a security risk assessment and create either a site security plan or an alternate security plan.

AcuTech provided essential subject matter expertise to DHS in 2006-2007 as the first prime contractor when they created CFATS including development of the Risk Based Performance Standards (RBPS). We can provide critical support and insight through the entire CFATS cycle from planning, top screen, security vulnerability assessment, site security plan and management of security. Our expert team of security consultants have assisted a number of companies through the evaluation, creation and continuing support for facility site security plans. We keep up-to-date on regulation and keep you informed about changes that affect your business.

The Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) is designed to strengthen port and waterway security. It requires facilities to conduct facility or vessel security assessments, create a facility security plan that addresses deficiencies, and verifiably implement those plans.

AcuTech can conduct a security risk assessment, furnish a cost-benefit analysis of proposed countermeasures, and assist with the drafting of the site security plan. We can also help you to streamline TWIC requirements into your exiting security plans.  We ensure that you can meet compliance without compromising your operations.
