§ 431.59
Issuance of payload reentry determination.
(a) The FAA issues a favorable payload reentry determination unless it determines that reentry of the proposed payload would adversely affect U.S. national security or foreign policy interests, would jeopardize public health and safety or the safety of property, or would not be consistent with international obligations of the United States. The FAA responds to any person who has requested a payload reentry review of its determination in writing. The notice states the reasons for the determination in the event of an unfavorable determination.
(b) Any person issued an unfavorable payload reentry determination may respond to the reasons for the determination and request reconsideration.
