(a) The FAA conducts a safety review to determine whether an applicant is capable of conducting launch processing and flight without jeopardizing public health and safety and safety of property.

(b) The FAA advises an applicant, in writing, of any issue raised during a safety review that would impede issuance of a safety approval. The applicant may respond, in writing, or amend its license application as required by § 413.17 of this chapter.
(c) An applicant must make available to the FAA upon request a copy of any information incorporated into a license application by reference.
(d) A safety approval is part of the licensing record on which the FAA bases its licensing determination.
