The Department of Homeland Security identifies and regulates high-risk chemical facilities through the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program. The CFATS program prevents the misuse of certain Chemicals of Interest (COI) at America’s high-risk chemical facilities for use in a terrorist act on the homeland through the systematic regulation, inspection, and enforcement of chemical infrastructure security requirements.

Any facility which has a chemical listed in Appendix A, at or above screening threshold quantity, must report it to DHS. There are over 300 chemicals in Appendix A, which can be viewed at
