Title: Changing the Collective Risk Limits for Launches and Reentries and Clarifying the Risk Limit Used to Establish Hazard Areas for Ships and Aircraft 
Abstract: This rulemaking would revise the requirements, 1) establish quantitative public risk acceptability criteria that treat launch and reentry separately, 2) define the scope of launch and reentry mission for the purposes of quantitative risk analyses (QRA), and 3) apply QRA requirements, including uncertainty analysis, equally to all types of launch and reentry vehicles. These revisions update the current regulations and are consistent with current practices at the Federal ranges.
