The U.S. National Space Council announced the update to the U.S. Government (USG) Orbital Debris Mitigation Standard Practices (ODMSP). The announcement took place at the First International Orbital Debris Conference (co-sponsored by NASA) in Sugar Land, Texas.
Originally published in 2001, this 2019 update to the ODMSP (required by SPD-3) includes improvements to the original objectives, as well as clarification and additional standard practices for certain classes of space operations. It provides a reference to promote efficient and effective space safety practices for other domestic and international operators.
