The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released its November report regarding progress made with inspections of chemical facilities.

In a meeting last week, the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) provided retailer input on DHS's plans to accelerate the CFATS program through: third-party auditors, Alternative security programs, streamlined inspections and corporate-based approaches.

"We made it clear today that DHS needs to have a functional process to provide retailers compliance assistance before ARA members are inspected," said Michael Kennedy, ARA public policy counsel. "Unlike large chemical companies with the extra staff, retailers are at disadvantage."
