SOCMA Statement on CFATS Reauthorization

Arlington, VA – The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) commends Sen. Gary Peters’ for introducing legislation to reauthorize the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program.

The CFATS program has strengthened security for chemical facilities, successfully protecting them from diversion, attack, and other intentional harms. A five-year reauthorization of this program will continue to strengthen and enhance chemical security in the United States, while giving businesses needed regulatory certainty.

SOCMA strongly urges Congress to pass this legislation before the program expires on July 27, 2023.

Solely dedicated to the specialty and fine chemical industry, SOCMA focuses on building commercial connections, supporting manufacturing and operations, and advocating for regulatory and legislative policies. www.socma.org
