DHS Chemical Security Roundtable Discussion
Freeman, Craig; Koch, William
How is DHS 6 CFR 27 impacting your organization? On April 9, 2007, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued new Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) (6 CFR 27) that are likely to affect many chemical processing, manufacturing, and storage facilities. This includes all semiconductor manufacturing facilities in the United States that use certain hazardous chemicals. SESHA/TERF wants to help its members better understand and comply with these new regulations. This roundtable discussion will be hosted by a panel consisting of Craig Freeman, Department of Homeland Security and Bill Koch, head of security for Air Products and Chair of the NPRA Security Committee, Vice Chair of the CGA Security Committee, a member of the ACC Security Committee and an active participant on many DHS Task Forces.
