The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) for all facilities that manufacture, use, store, or distribute certain chemicals on the chemicals of interest list that includes chemicals that present one or more security issues. The federal government has recognized that research universities may have chemicals of interest (COIs) to terrorists, and the legislation requires detailed chemical inventory reporting.

In order to comply with the regulatory requirements, each OU PI is responsible for reviewing the chemicals of interest list and reporting the possession of any of the chemicals on the list through this on-line chemical inventory. Even though you may not possess any of the chemicals on the list, as a PI you are still responsible for completing the inventory. This inventory should be updated whenever there is a change in the PI's inventory and reviewed at least annually for accuracy.
