  What is the SAFETY Act?

The SAFETY Act provides important legal liability protections for providers of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies - whether they are products or services. The goal of the SAFETY Act is to encourage the development and deployment of effective anti-terrorism products and services by providing liability protections.

SAFETY Act Consultation and Assistance:
The SAFETY Act liability protections apply to a wide range of anti-terrorism products, systems, and services. A private sector entity must apply for protections for the Department of Homeland Security to determine if their offering is a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology. The Office of SAFETY Act Implementation (OSAI) encourages the private sector to engage with our office prior to submitting a full application.

Please visit SAFETY Act postcard for consultation contact information.
