“Potentially explosive and hazardous chemicals have been subject to environmental and safety regulations for many years, but after the Oklahoma City bombing and concerns about terrorist threats, the Department of Homeland Security will now require manufacturers, businesses or facilities that use or store certain chemicals to report their use to DHS in an online form.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff described the rules as a “a critical piece” of federal efforts to decrease the threat of large private stockpiles of chemicals being used as a weapon.” (The Signal)
