These are NanoTrasen's own regulations enforced on their vessels and habitats. They are not crimes and do not need to be reported to the Sol Central Goverment, and it is unlawful to confine an individual for violating these regulations. At the discretion of the superiors of the individual, any individual who violates these regulations may be dismissed or demoted. Listed will be the minimum punishments. These regulations can be altered or disregarded at any time by the corporate liaison or research director at their discretion, but unlawful usage of that power must be reported to Internal Affairs. The corporate liaison may veto the research director's decision to alter these regulations, but is permitted alter them without the consent of the research director. These regulations do not apply to anyone other than NanoTrasen employees.
