SAFETY Act
 
Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002
Special Announcements
As we approach the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks it is important to re-affirm the foundational principles of the SAFETY Act and its role in providing critical incentives for the development and deployment of effective anti-terrorism offerings. The DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is committed to providing liability protections to sellers of qualified anti-terrorism technologies in support of the overall DHS mission to safeguard the American people.

In recent months applicants may have experienced delays in the processing of their submissions. In addition to the continued limitations imposed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of SAFETY Act Implementation (OSAI) is reviewing its current processes and procedures to ensure the most effective execution of the program. As a result, OSAI will be better positioned to support providers of innovative and effective anti-terrorism offerings that reduce risk to the Nation.

  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.
