SAFETY Act

Walter P Moore has the unique capabilities to support key elements of our clients’ SAFETY Act application process.

What is the SAFETY Act?

SAFETY Act stands for Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies. This program was implemented by the Department of Homeland Security in 2002 to provide incentives for development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies by creating systems of risk and litigation management. Two levels of liability protection are considered: 

  • Designation – Department of Homeland Security caps a seller’s insurance liability in the event of an act of terrorism. 
  • Certification – Designation benefits, plus the seller can assert Government Contractor Defense for claims arising from acts of terrorism.

This program incentivizes our nation’s stadiums and other public venues to implement effective anti-terrorism technology.
