  • Release: Toxic, flammable, or explosive chemicals or materials that, if released from a facility, have the potential for significant adverse consequences for human life or health.
  • Theft or Diversion: Chemicals or materials that, if stolen or diverted, have the potential to be misused as weapons or easily converted into weapons using simple chemistry, equipment or techniques, in order to create significant adverse consequences for human life or health.
  • Sabotage: Chemicals or materials that, if mixed with readily available materials, have the potential to create significant adverse consequences for human life or health.

The Department of Homeland Security requires any institution that may possess "Chemicals of Interest" in excess of its listed thresholds, to submit to the DHS a detailed survey, and may be required to undertake a security vulnerability assessment, as well as implement a security plan.
