AED Laws

There are federal and state laws that apply to the purchase, use and liabilities of AEDs that must be complied with. These laws also address indemnification to responders of AEDs.

AEDs are manufactured and sold under guidelines approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA may require someone who purchases an AED to present a physician’s prescription for the device.
