  • Start Preamble


    Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


    Notice and request for comments.


    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves information demonstrating that a launch or reentry operation involving a human participant will meet the risk criteria and requirements to ensure public safety. The information to be collected is necessary for the FAA to assess crew qualification and training; for operators to inform space flight participants and crew members of the risks associated with launch and reentry activities; for the implementation of waiver of claims; and to ensure environmental control and life support systems and other systems adequately protect public health and safety.
