Posted: July 17th, 2008Authors: Bill S.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has begun distributing the initial notification letters to those facilities that submitted a Top-Screen analysis. The initial notification letters identify a preliminary determination of risk-based tiering and establish deadlines to submit the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA). DHS has identified submittal deadlines of between 90 and 180 days to submit the SVA based on the preliminary tiering determinations.
