DHS Certifies E-Z-EM’s Skin Decontamination Lotion

E-Z-EM’s skin decontamination product, intended to remove or neutralize chemical warfare agents or T2 toxin from the skin, recently received the designation and certification as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Trademarked as RSDL, the reactive skin decontamination lotion was also granted certification under the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act of 2002.

The purpose of the SAFETY Act is to encourage the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies that will substantially enhance the protection of the nation.

The designation and certification of RSDL under the Safety Act will extend certain liability protection to the company and its customers, whether public or private, in the event RSDL is used in response to a terrorist incident. RSDL is the first and only decontamination product to receive this certification.

Originally developed for the Canadian Ministry of Defense, RSDL has since been adopted by several military services around the world, and is currently undergoing final configuration testing by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for deployment with U.S. troops, according to a news release from E-Z-EM.

The U.S. Department of Defense authorized the sale of RSDL to first responder organizations in September.
