The National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958, 51 U.S.C. § 309, pt. 2458c, as amended, authorized a developer of a reusable launch vehicle to request indemnification from NASA during testing/operations. § 309(b)(2)(D) required a NASA safety review prior to the NASA Administrator granting any indemnification.
In 2010, Pub. L. 111-314 § 3 relocated § 309 to 51 U.S.C. pt. 20139 and added section 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 As a result, Chapter 10 of this document has been withdrawn.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.
