Completed Actions: Improving Data Management


Shared Data to Identify Potentially Noncompliant Facilities

  • DHS and EPA adopted new data-sharing procedures to identify facilities that, based on their required filings, could possess threshold levels of CFATS COI but have not yet filed required Top-Screen information with DHS or a required RMP with EPA.

Updated Online System to Assist Facility Compliance

  • The EPA Substance Registry Services (SRS) assists facilities that possess chemical substances to determine their regulatory requirements by providing information about chemical substances tracked or regulated by EPA or other sources.  It has been updated to include CFATS and PSM- covered substances, which allows facilities to be informed about potential regulatory coverage under PSM and CFATS in addition to other EPA regulatory programs.

Updated Online System for Facility Data

  • Facility Registry Service (FRS) integrates facility data from across nearly 90 different Federal and State systems, allowing users to compare facilities between systems, including chemical data and compliance history.  The FRS has been updated to include facilities that complete a DHS Top-Screen submission for CFATS, which allows Federal agencies to identify (1) facilities that are covered by multiple Federal regulatory entities and (2) potentially noncompliant facilities, often referred to as outliers. The FRS has also been updated to include OSHA data.

Tested New Emergency Planning and Response Tools

  • EPA Region 8 tested a new system called ER Planner that aggregates chemical facility and infrastructure data from various Federal and State databases and displays it on an interactive Geographic Information System (GIS) application.  Accounts are provided to Federal, State, and local authorities, with appropriate permission levels for various data layers based on the user’s need to know and ability to protect information.

Contacted Agriculture Associations

  • DHS contacted 49 State agribusiness associations to identify potentially noncompliant facilities and to raise awareness about chemical facility security regulations.  The State agribusiness associations represent crop nutrients, crop protection, and in some cases grain and feed, at the State and local level.
