Enacted by Congress in 2002, the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act (SAFETY Act) serves as one of the highest levels of accreditation offered by Homeland Security and promotes the development and deployment of effective anti-terrorism products, systems and services.

According to the company, the SAFETY Act designation and certification award recognises CEIA USA for having technologies and processes needed to help mitigate and reduce the risk of a terrorist attack and provides liability protection.

CEIA USA highlights that its solutions have been an active part of SAFETY Act awards since 2006.

The term of the designation for OPENGATE is valid through 30 June 2028. The term for the designation and certification of its series of walk-through and hand-held metal detectors is valid through 31 May 2028.
