14 CFR 1214.503 - Policy.

§ 1214.503 Policy.
(a) The Space Shuttle and the Space Station Freedom are included in the NASA National Resource Protection Program as delineated in NMI 8610.22, “National Resource Protection Program.” 2 The Space Shuttle and the Space Station Freedom provide a capability to support a wide range of scientific applications and commercial, defense, and international uses. Since they will contribute significantly to ensuring a scientifically, technologically, and economically strong and secure nation, program reliability, operational and safety considerations require that stringent measures be taken to provide for the protection of the systems. In addition to the Space Shuttle and the Space Station Freedom, designated ELV's, designated payloads, Shuttle Carrier Aircraft and other designated resources which provide the same critical access to space or the ability to accomplish critical objectives in space are considered to constitute valued national resources.

Footnote(s):
2 See footnote 1 to § 1214.502(e).

(b) Measures to ensure this protection are:
(1) Special physical security provisions as provided in NMI 8610.22. 3

Footnote(s):
3 See footnote 1 to § 1214.502(e).

(2) Procedures to ensure that personnel assigned to mission critical positions/duties meet screening requirements, as set forth in § 1214.504 of this part prior to unescorted access to areas where mission critical space systems are located.
