Eleven public meetings scheduled to focus on ammonium nitrate security program

The National Protection and Programs Directorate of DHS is planning a series of at least 11 public meetings in cities primarily in the South and West at which DHS officials will discuss a new security program to regulate the sale and transfer of ammonium nitrate, which could be used as an explosive in an act of terrorism.

The department issued proposed rules in this arena last August, and is now soliciting input from members of the public on topics related to ammonium nitrate, including their use and characteristics, verification of sales and transfers, and recordkeeping, according to a Federal Register notice on Oct. 7

The public meetings, which will each run as long as four hours, are scheduled in the following cities on the following dates: Jackson, MS on Oct. 11; Lubbock, TX on Oct. 13; Sacramento, CA on Oct. 18; Knoxville, TN on Oct. 20; Overland Park, KS on Oct. 25; Oklahoma City, OK on Oct. 27; Savannah, GA on Nov. 1; Charleston, WV on Nov. 3; Mobile, AL on Nov. 8; Washington, DC on Nov. 10 and Denver, CO on Nov. 15. The NPPD said it might also schedule additional public meetings.

Interested parties can see transcripts of each meeting and other related documents by visiting the Website www.regulations.gov and citing docket number DHS-2008-0076.

Further information is available from the manager of the Ammonium Nitrate Security Program at 703-235-5263.
