NASA OIG Is Investigating Human Rating Requirements

NASA OIG: NASA's Top Management and Performance Challenges

"Efforts to develop commercial vehicles capable of carrying humans to the ISS and other low Earth orbit destinations present significant challenges. One issue of particular complexity is NASA's intent to "human-rate" any new flight system, whether developed commercially or by NASA. NASA only recently developed comprehensive human-rating standards for NASA-developed systems, and the certification process that will be used to human-rate commercial vehicles - several of which are already well under development - is not yet fully defined. Given the importance of this issue, the OIG is examining NASA's development of human-rating standards for commercial vehicles and will evaluate how commercial space transportation providers intend to implement NASA's safety and human-rating requirements."
