About SAFETY Act

Congress enacted the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002, or SAFETY Act, to encourage the development of anti-terrorism technologies.

In the event of a terrorist attack, SAFETY Act limits the liability of developers and sellers of anti-terrorism technologies. More specifically, SAFETY Act protects developers and sellers of anti-terrorism technologies from “claims arising out of, relating to, or resulting from an act of terrorism” in which their anti-terrorism technologies were involved.

The SAFETY Act provides important legal liability protections for providers of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATT) - whether they are products or services. An increase in development of anti-terrorism technologies, fostered by SAFETY Act, should help deter terrorism and ultimately save lives.
