CISA Publishes Two CFATS ICR Revision Notices
Today the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency published two information collection revision notices for the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program. CISA is soliciting public feedback on each of the notices. Both ICR revisions address editorial changes such as “updating the Agency name to conform with the Agency's new designation as CISA”. Changes in the burden estimate are being proposed in both revisions.
The two ICRs being revised are:
1670-0014 – Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards, and
1670-0029 – Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Personnel Surety Program
NOTE: The first link on each line is to the Current ICR and the second is to today’s ICR notice.
This ICR covers the following CFATS program information collections:
• Request for Redetermination,
• Compliance Assistance, and
• Declaration Reporting Status
The table below shows the revised burden estimate for each of the collections. The revision information is based upon recent historical responses to each collection.
There is only a single collection document in this ICR. CISA has revised the way they estimate the number of respondents. This time they were able to base their estimate on the historical data from the submissions from all four Tiers of facilities. The previous estimates were based upon Tier I and Tier II facilities only.
CISA is soliciting public comments on both of these ICR revisions. Comments may be submitted via the Federal eRulemaking Portal (www.Regulations.gov, Dockets CISA-2021-0009 and CISA-2021-0003). Comments should be submitted by August 23rd, 2021.
