Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel


ABOUT ASAP
Since it was established in 1968, the Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) has been evaluating NASA’s safety performance and advising the Agency on ways to improve that performance. The ASAP bases its advice on direct observation of NASA operations and decision-making. In the aftermath of the Shuttle Columbia accident, Congress required that the ASAP submit an annual report to the NASA Administrator and to Congress. The annual report is to examine NASA’s compliance with the recommendations of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board (CAIB), as well as NASA’s management and culture related to safety.

In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92-463, as amended, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration will announce meetings of the Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel on this page.
