Chemical Security Assessment Tool

Problem Statement:

  • The Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT) collects directly from chemical facilities, refineries, and LNG facilities information in support of chemical security regulation

Technical Approach:

  • The CSAT system
    • Collect data, perform quality assurance, geospatial, statistical, and data analysis
    • Facilities are ranked based on risk parameters 
    • Facilities are assessed for vulnerabilities, and security plans are developed
  • Operational support systems
    • Perform risk analysis
    • Facilitate knowledge discovery across data warehouse
    • Allow content providers to manage and deliver content to system users and chemical community


  • Allows implementation of “mandatory security requirements for the nation’s chemical sector and a system for auditing and ensuring compliance with the security standards”
