DHS' CSAT Page Addresses Top-Screen Completion Change

The Department of Homeland Security has updated its Chemical Security Assessment Tool's online FAQ page, which allows visitors to submit CFATS-related questions.

A new question and answer was posted concerning the Top-Screen questionaire, an information-gathering tool developed by DHS to help identify high-risk chemical facilities subject CFATS and to determine preliminary tier placements for those facilities.

Question and answer follows:

  • 1363. I have completed the Top-Screen and submitted it to DHS, but I discovered that I need to make some changes to the information I submitted. How can I do this?

    The CSAT tool has a replacement feature. You may use it by following this procedure: Log in to CSAT at https://csat.dhs.gov/csat and click on the "CSAT Application" link. You will now see a list of your facilities and their survey status. Facilities with a submitted Top Screen survey will have a button titled "Replace Top-Screen" to the right of the submitted survey. Click on this button and you will be asked to input your name and the reason for the new submission. After entering this information click on "Create Additional Top Screen" and your new Top Screen survey will be created.
