Companies that service the U.S. civil space industry should assess their risk profiles as they prepare to provide information to the federal government about their business practices.
On March 6, 2023, the Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) (collectively, the Agencies) announced a comprehensive assessment of the U.S. Civil Space Industrial Base (CSIB). The Agencies’ inquiries will target prime contractors, commercial companies, federally funded research and development centers, universities, laboratories, and others who support non-military/defense space-related work, primarily for NASA, NOAA, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Communications Commission, and the Department of Energy.
