IV. Incorporation of the Critical Manufacturing Sector Into the NIPP Framework The NIPP framework includes a SCC within all of the sectors containing private sector CIKR owners and/or operators. The SCC includes CIKR owners and/or operators and private industry trade associations representative of CIKR owners and/or operators. By policy, SCCs are selfcreated and self-led entities, and DHS encourages public engagement in the development of the Critical Manufacturing SCC. Each of the sectors also has a GCC whose membership includes a lead Federal agency that is defined as the SSA, and all of the relevant Federal, State, local, Tribal, and Territorial government agencies (or their representative trade associations) whose mission interests also involve the scope of the NIPP activities for that particular sector. As directed and authorized by section 4.1.1 of the NIPP (National-Level Coordination), the Assistant Secretary, Office of Infrastructure Protection will assume interim leadership in supporting the development of an SCC and coordinating the development of a GCC, and identify an SSA to meet the requirements of HSPD–7 and the NIPP. At the conclusion of the above process, the Secretary will identify the GCC government agency membership and designate a Federal agency as the SSA. The SSA, SCC, and GCC will thereafter comprise the Critical Manufacturing Sector and continue to organize and coordinate in order to accommodate the intent of the NIPP and full integration into the CIKR Sector Partnership. As the NIPP is the primary mechanism for coordinating the coverage of CIKR sectors and their constituent systems and assets, DHS will revise its contents to include the Critical Manufacturing CIKR sector. As part of a comprehensive national review, DHS seeks comments on changes to the NIPP to reflect the addition of the Critical Manufacturing sector. These changes will include adding the Critical Manufacturing sector and its SSA to those sections of the NIPP where sectors and their SSAs are listed, referenced, or described. DHS will also amend the last sentence of the definition of ‘‘Sector’’ in the Glossary to read, ‘‘The NIPP addresses the 17 CIKR sectors enumerated in HSPD–7 and any VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:09 Apr 29, 2008 Jkt 214001 additional sectors created by the Secretary of Homeland Security pursuant to HSPD–7.’’ For purposes of review, the NIPP can be found at http://www.dhs.gov/nipp. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Robert B.
