DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AK44 Publication ID: Spring 2016 
Title: Reciprocal Waivers of Claims for Licensed or Permitted Launch and Reentry Activities (RRR) 

This rulemaking would extend the waiver of claims for all the customers involved in a launch or reentry, amend the requirement describing which entities are required to sign the statutorily-mandated waiver of claims, and add a new waiver template for the customer´s use. This rulemaking would ease the administrative burden on the customers, licensees, permittees, and the FAA, especially when a new customer is added only a short time before the scheduled launch or reentry.
