History of RSDL

RSDL was initially developed by Defence Research and Development Canada, an agency of the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND), to prepare the Canadian forces for chemical warfare attacks. The first configuration of RSDL was distributed to Canadian troops during the First Gulf War in 1991. The U.S. Department of Defense became interested in RSDL and began testing on the product after the Gulf War. The Military then filed to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA issued 510(k) clearance for RSDL in November 2002. The European CE Mark and Australian TGA clearances were later issued. RSDL has been adopted by several militaries around the world since that time.

Since its development, over 15 million packets of RSDL have been sold in over 35 countries.
