Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act

This legislation calls for the establishment of standards and equipment to scan for radiation all imported containers entering US ports. It includes protocols for emergency response, involving cooperation between local, state, and federal governments and the private sector. The act also calls for the inspection of "high-risk containers" before arrival to the US, and a strengthening of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program.
