a. This NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) provides requirements to report, investigate, and document mishaps, close calls, and resulting corrective actions to prevent occurrence of similar work-related injury, property damage, or mission failure. This NPR does not apply to investigative procedures concerning civil, criminal, or administrative culpability or legal liability.
