DHS Releases CSAT SSP Edit Process User Guide

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released the CSAT SSP Edit Process User Guide. The manual “provides instructions to facilities for editing and resubmitting their submitted Site Security Plan (SSP) through the Chemical Security Assessment Tool (CSAT)” to make either an administrative or technical edit.

Administrative edits relate to changes pertaining to the facility’s description, contact information, local police, fire and Emergency Management Team (EMT) jurisdiction information, and employee and workshift information. Technical edits involve changes to the facility’s operations, security measures, and other non-administrative components of the SSP. Note that once DHS has approved a facility’s SSP, the facility may only make technical edits to its SSP once every 90 days.

It is important to remember that a facility’s current SSP remains in effect until the submitted edits are reviewed and approved by DHS. Further, even after a facility receives a letter from DHS authorizing/approving the SSP edits, the facility's original SSP approval date and Top-Screen re-submission deadlines do not change.
