The National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 (42 U.S.C. § 2458c), as amended in Section 309, authorized a developer of a reuseable launch vehicle to request indemnification from NASA during testing/operations. Section 309(b)(2)(D) required a NASA safety review prior to the NASA Administrator granting any indemnification.
In 2010, Public Law 111-314, Section 3, relocated Section 309 to 51 U.S.C. § 20139 and amended (f)(1) which set a termination date of December 31, 2010 on the authority for NASA to grant new indemnification under this provision. As a result, Chapter 10 of this document has been withdrawn. Should a developer of a space flight system for NASA be granted the authority to request indemnification or insurance from NASA under federal law or federal regulation requiring the NASA Administrator's approval, then the program/project manager must contact the NASA Headquarters Office of Safety and Mission Assurance for the process needed to perform a safety review of such a request.
|9||Chief, Safety and Mission Assurance||2/8/2013||
After discussions with various Centers, and JSC in particular, OSMA has decided to cancel NASA-STD 8719.10, Standard for Underwater Facility and non-Open Water Operations, as a mandatory standard. JSC is the only Center using this standard, and JSC will be responsible for maintaining a safety standard for its underwater activities. This is consistent with Agency policy. Cancelling NASA-STD 8719.10 necessitates administrative changes to NPR 8715.3C, NASA General Safety Program Requirements, paragraph 3.12, Underwater Operations Safety. In addition to eliminating the reference to NASA-STD 8719.10 in NPR 8715.3, references to regulatory, other Agency, and consensus standards are added to the NPR, and the requirements for a diving safety manual and diving control board that were contained in NASA-STD 8719.10 are moved from NASA-STD 8719.10 to NPR 8715.3.
