SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 550 of Public Law 109–295 provides the Department of Homeland Security with the authority to regulate the security of high-risk chemical facilities. Before the enactment of section 550, the Federal government did not have the authority to regulate the security of most of our nation’s chemical facilities. On April 9, 2007, the Department issued an Interim Final Rule (IFR), implementing this statutory mandate at 72 FR 17688. Section 550 requires a risk-based approach to security. The Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), 6 CFR part 27, are the Department’s regulations under section 550 governing security at highrisk chemical facilities. CFATS represents a national-level effort to minimize terrorism risk to such facilities. Its design and implementation balance maintaining economic vitality with securing facilities and their surrounding communities. The regulations were designed, in collaboration with the private sector and other stakeholders, to take advantage of protective measures already in place and to allow facilities to employ a wide range of tailored measures to satisfy the regulations’ Risk-Based Performance Standards (RBPS). CFATS also establishes, in 6 CFR 27.400, the requirements that covered persons must follow to safeguard certain E:\FR\FM\25SEN1.SGM 25SEN1
