Developmental Testing & Evaluation (DT&E) Designations

Developmental Testing & Evaluation (DT&E) Designation provides protection during further testing or trial deployment of a technology to collect additional efficacy data necessary for a full Designation. DT&E Designation provides liability protections similar to a full Designation but with certain limitations and constraints and has a limited term for testing or evaluating the technology (presumptively not longer than 36 months). SAFETY Act liability protections associated with DT&E Designations will apply only to acts that occur during the period set forth in the particular DT&E Designation.
