Federal Programs and Legislation

The National Space Council: The policy provides guidelines and direction to ensure that the United States is a leader in providing a safe and secure environment as commercial and civil space traffic increases. Under SPD-3, the Department of Commerce will make space safety data and services available to the public, while the Department of Defense maintains the authoritative catalogue of space objects.

Export Control Reform: The federal government has implemented reforms of export control regulations, creating a more predictable, efficient, and transparent technology control regime. Some aircraft parts that formerly were controlled under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations are now controlled under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Many EAR-controlled aerospace products can be exported from the United States with no export license needed.
