The FAA reviews a payload proposed for launch or reentry to determine whether a license applicant or payload owner or operator has obtained all required licenses, authorizations, and permits, unless the payload is exempt from review. Each payload is subject to compliance monitoring by FAA before launch, unless otherwise exempt.
An applicant may submit data related to the policy, safety, and payload review together as a single package or separately.
Procedures for completing the Payload Review are described in 14 CFR Part 415.51-415.63 and Part 431.7 and Part 431.51-431.61.
