Full Description The purpose of a Facility Security Plan ("FSP") is to provide the framework to establish a secure workplace. The plan provides an overview of the threats facing the facility and describes the security measures and procedures designed to mitigate risk and protect people, assets, operations, and company reputation. This API Recommended Practice was prepared with guidance and direction from the API Security Committee, to assist the petroleum and petrochemical industries in the preparation of a Facility Security Plan. This Recommended Practice specifies the requirements for preparing an FSP as well as a discussion of the typical elements included in an FSP. This Recommended Practice is intended to be flexible and adaptable to the needs of the user. It is noted that the content of an FSP can vary depending on circumstances such as facility size, location, and operations. This methodology is one approach for preparing an FSP at petroleum and petrochemical facilities. There are other security plan formats available for the industry. It is the responsibility of the user to choose the format and content of the FSP that best meets the needs of a specific facility. The format and content of some FSPs should be dictated by government regulations for covered facilities. This Recommended Practice is not intended to supersede the requirements of any regulated facility but may be used as a reference document.
