U.S. Department of Homeland Security Requests Comments on PS-Prep 1/8/2009


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) invites risk professionals to provide comments on the Voluntary Private Sector Preparedness Accreditation and Certification Program (PS-Prep) by January 23. PS-Prep will assess whether a private sector entity complies with one or more voluntary preparedness standards adopted by DHS. The program will raise the level of private sector preparedness through a number of means, including:

  • establishing a system for DHS to adopt private sector preparedness standards; 
  • encouraging creation of those standards; 
  • developing a method for a private sector entity to obtain a certification of conformity with a particular DHS-adopted private sector standard, and encouraging such certification; and  
  • making preparedness standards adopted by DHS more widely available.

Submissions may be made online at, using docket ID FEMA-2008-0017. For more information, click here
