Administration, F. A. (n.d.). Final Report on Rlv Licensing Approaches. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The Commercial Space Act of 1998 granted to the FAA authority to license re-entry by launch vehicles. The Act requires the FAA to issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) addressing regulations for re-entry licensing by May 1999. In addition to the NPRM direction from the FAA, the FAA Associate Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation (AST) requested that the Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee (COMSTAC) provide support in two other areas. The first area was set forth in the October 8, 1998 letter from the AST Associate Administrator. This letter identified certain public safety issues for both launch and re-entry of Reusable Launch Vehicles (RLVs) and Re-entry Vehicles (RVs).
