CFATS and the CSU Experience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Universities and colleges have compliance obligations related to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS.) Colorado State University is a case study of what a university had to do in order to maintain their compliance obligations. DHS developed CFATS with industrial sites in mind and thus many of the CFATS requirements were not possible to meet in a university setting. CSU went through several Homeland Security inspections relative to CFATS and worked with DHS to meet the CFATS requirements in a university setting and maintain the DHS compliance obligations.

Learn what to expect from a Homeland Security (CFATS) inspection and how CSU reponded to the inspections.
