NASA Office of Safety and Mission Assurance
The central Agency document containing policy and safety requirements which define the NASA safety program. Addresses explosives safety and health aspects of working with these materials. These regulations "apply to all NASA organizations, elements, entities, and individuals, to all NASA systems and facilities, and during all phases of the life cycle of systems or facilities."
