Benefits of QATT qualification Edit

When a technology is designated as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT), the seller of the QATT is granted limited liability for all claims arising out of the deployment of the QATT with respect to an "act of terrorism" (as defined in SAFETY Act and the implementing regulations). The maximum liability is determined by the Department of Homeland Security on an applicant-by-applicant basis based on information contained in the application, and the seller is required to maintain liability insurance at that level.

The seller also enjoys other important protections, including immunity from punitive damages. In addition, in accordance with DHS's interpretation of SAFETY Act, the seller becomes the sole entity that can be sued for third party injuries, effectively protecting all other companies and persons in the manufacturing and distribution chains from liability.
