Commercial Spaceflight Federation

Nice website for the interesting Commercial Spaceflight Federation. The CSF carries some influence in Washington. Its mission is (in part) to "promote the development of commercial human spaceflight, pursue ever higher levels of safety, and share best practices and expertise throughout the industry."

It looks like the CSF might act in a manner something like the International Air Transport Association, which has a mission for commercial aircraft flight. The IATA's mission is (in part) "improved safety is IATA’s number one priority, and IATA’s goal is to continually improve safety standards." That is similar to the CSF. But they go on to say "Another main concern is to minimize the impact of air transport on the environment."
