Scope:

This code shall apply to the design, construction, limitation of rocket propellant mass and power, and reliability of model rocket motors and model rocket motor reloading kits and their components, produced commercially for sale to or for use by the public for purposes of education, recreation, and sporting competition.

This code also shall apply to the design and construction of model rockets propelled by model rocket motors specified in 1.1.1.

This code also shall apply to the conduct of launch operations of model rockets specified in 1.1.2.

This code shall not apply to the design, construction, production, manufacture, fabrication, maintenance, launch, flight, test, operation, use, or other activity that is connected with a rocket or rocket motor where carried out or engaged in by any of the following:

(1) National, state, or local government

(2) Individual, firm, partnership, joint venture, corporation, or other business entity engaged as a licensed business in the research, development, production, testing, maintenance, or supply of rockets, rocket motors, rocket propellant chemicals, or rocket components or parts

(3) Colleges or universities

This code shall not apply to the design, construction, fabrication, maintenance, production, manufacture, launch, flight, test, operation, or use of rocket-propelled model aircraft that sustain their mass against the force of gravity by aerodynamic lifting surfaces that support the aircraft during the entire duration of its flight in the air, but it shall apply to the model rocket motors and their components that provide the propulsion for such model aircraft.

This code shall not apply to fireworks rockets or pyrotechnic rockets as defined in NFPA 1123.

This code shall not apply to NFPA 1124.

This code shall not apply to NFPA 1126.

This code shall not apply to high power rocketry as defined in NFPA 1127.

Purpose.

The purpose of this code shall be to ensure the availability of commercial model rocket motors and components that meet standards of safety and reliability to ensure that the creative and experimental use of model rocket devices by the public is reasonably safe.

The purpose of this code also shall be to discourage the making and launching of homemade rockets and other rocketlike vehicles propelled by, or intended to be propelled by, homemade rocket-propulsion devices.

The purpose of this code also shall be to discourage experiments with explosive or highly energetic rocket propellants, construction of homemade rocket-propulsion motors, and attempted launchings or operations of these homemade rocket devices, thereby minimizing deaths and injuries.

Enforcement. This code shall be administered and enforced by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) designated by the governing authority. (See Annex D for sample wording for enabling legislation.)
