Accurately knowing the laws is required to properly follow the laws.

About the AED Law Center

Organizations with AEDs must follow industry standards and AED laws. AED laws vary widely by jurisdiction and generally do three things:

  1. Tell organizations what they must do to administer and operate an AED program;
  2. Define what if any legal protections may be available to the organizations and people involved in AED programs (so called Good Samaritan immunity); and
  3. Identify the types of organizations that must have AEDs.

Only the AED Law Center has trusted, complete and up-to-date AED laws to help you become and stay compliant.

Buyer beware. You can find so-called “free AED law information” on the internet. But really, how “free” is information that is incomplete, inaccurate, and unreliable? Too much is at stake when you need to be and prove you are compliant.
