The Department of Homeland Security Chemical Sector Security Summit begins July 22, 2014 in Baltimore, Maryland providing an opportunity for attendees from the chemical community to both share and learn from successes in the industry.

- Executive Order 13650, Improving Chemical Facility Safety and Security
- Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) updates

In addition to the many chances to network with industry experts, the forum also presents attendees with opportunities to learn more about Federal, State and local agencies and departments involved in chemical security as well as gain an understanding of what compliance preparations they’ll need to make in the coming year.
Department of Homeland Security officials will also be available to discuss best practices for Site Security Plans, Alternate Security Programs and Authorization I Inspections.
