Security is a very important consideration for all MPC operations and facilities. MPC conducts security vulnerability and threat assessments and implements loss prevention strategies and site measures in order to protect its employees, contractors, facilities and the communities in which it operates. Assessments provide an understanding of potential security weaknesses and a framework for determining any appropriate security countermeasures.
In addition, some facilities in the U.S. must comply with Department of Homeland Security laws and regulations designed to protect critical infrastructure and ensure chemical security. This includes certain MPC facilities or operations that fall under the jurisdiction of the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA), Transportation Workers Identification Credentials (TWIC) regulation and/or the Chemical Facility Anti-terrorism Standard (CFATS). Other segments of our operations must also comply with hazardous materials transportation security regulations under the Department of Transportations’ regulation HM-232 and the Transportation Security Guidelines for pipelines.
MPC also participates in the Custom and Border Protection (CBP) program Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT). This program provides additional protection for supply chain security at several of our facilities.
