How Do I Participate?

Individual retail facility owners/operators should contact their state associations to receive a username (number) and password in order to log onto the website. Retailers must have the logon information BEFORE attempting to access the SVA. Retailers who successfully logon and complete the plan will receive an immediate security risk-level assessment. Within 10 days after submittal of the information, the retailer will receive, by hardcopy, a list of recommended security countermeasures to offset their vulnerabilities along with a copy of their assessment, a certificate of completion, and other related materials. These countermeasures can be used in the creation of facility security and HAZMAT transportation security plans.
