Message from the RRAC PC Manager
Welcome to the website for NASA’s Principal Center for Regulatory Risk Analysis and Communication (RRAC). This website was designed to provide a means for disseminating information to the NASA community regarding changes in environmental regulations that might be of interest or pose potential risks to the NASA mission. We hope that this information is helpful and easily accessible. Please contact us with any suggested improvements or for assistance.
The Principal Center for Regulatory Risk Analysis and Communication (RRAC PC) operates under a Memorandum of Agreement between NASA Headquarters and Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC). The Principal Center is managed by Sharon Scroggins at MSFC and is supported by a core team located throughout the country.
The RRAC PC supports the NASA Programs, Centers, and related stakeholders when representing their interests to environmental regulators during rulemaking activities, and by identifying, analyzing and communicating potential risks to the NASA mission from proposed, new, and existing regulations.
RRAC communicates regulatory issues to the NASA community by providing:
• Biweekly regulatory reviews and risk analyses (distributed to email
subscribers and archived on this website)
• Regulatory alerts and summaries for significant rulemakings (distributed to
email subscribers and archived on this website)
• Briefings to Working Groups, Programs, and other NASA stakeholders
