[i]Prior to SN8 test launch in December 2020, SpaceX sought a waiver to exceed the maximum public risk allowed by federal safety regulations. After the FAA denied the request, SpaceX proceeded with the flight.
As a result of this non-compliance, FAA required SpaceX to conduct an investigation of the incident. All testing that could affect public safety at the Boca Chica, Texas, launch site was suspended until the investigation was completed and FAA approved company's corrective actions to protect public safety. The corrective actions arising from the SN8 incident are incorporated into the SN9 launch license.[/i]
