Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Human Space 
Flight Requirements for Crew and Space Flight Participants

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: 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.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by August 12, 2019.

ADDRESSES: Please send written comments:
    By Electronic Docket: www.regulations.gov (Enter docket number into

this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the 
quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) 
ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of

of crew and space flight participants as required by the Commercial 
Space Launch Amendments Act of 2004. The information collected is used

crew member. The FAA uses the information to ensure that a launch or 
reentry operation involving a human on board a vehicle will meet the 
risk criteria and requirements to ensure public safety.
    Respondents: All commercial space entities that propose to conduct 
a launch or reentry with flight crew or space flight participants on 
board must comply with this collection.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.
