NASA published an interim final rule at 65 FR 80303 on December 21, 2000 to set forth policy and procedures with respect to International Space Station crewmembers provided by NASA for flight to the International Space Station. They apply to all persons so provided, including U.S. Government employees, uniformed members of the Armed Services, citizens who are not employees of the U.S. Government, and foreign nationals.
NASA received no comments on the interim final rule. Therefore, NASA has adopted the interim final rule as a final rule without change.
This rule is not a major Federal action as defined in Executive Order 12866.
B. Regulatory Flexibility Act
NASA certifies that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq., because the administrative notification requirements of the rule are expected to affect less than 10 contracts per year.
C. Paperwork Reduction Act
The information collection requirements of the rule do not reach the threshold for requiring the Office of Management and Budget's approval under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.Start List of Subjects
