SafeHaven’s Certifications

DO-H8 Priority Rating

On April 10, 2003, the US Department of State (DOS) issued a Defense Priorities and Allocations System (DPAS) order rated “DO-H8 Priority” (highest national priority) to SafeHaven Enterprises, LLC., which essentially had the effect of buying out all of SafeHaven’s existing private sector contracts for almost six years and directing 100% of SafeHaven’s expertise, resources and manufacturing capabilities to producing DOS-Certified Forced Entry/Ballistic Resistant (FE/BR) Modular Buildings to support the war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The purposes of DPAS are: (1) to ensure the timely availability of industrial resources to meet current national defense and emergency preparedness program requirements; and (2) to provide an operating system to support rapid industrial response in a national emergency.

SafeHaven was granted this prestigious DPAS status because the company had worked for years directly with the DOS and helped to create many of the DOS certification standards that are in place today. As a result, SafeHaven’s  products can be found in many US Embassies (including Paris, Jerusalem and Beirut), US Consulates, US Government facilities and US Classified locations worldwide. Its FE/BR and BRM modular buildings have been tested under live fire in Iraq, as well as in chemical plant explosions in the USA and Canada.
